Northwestern football releases threads for home opener vs. Duke in Week 2
Northwestern will be returning home to Evanston after beating Nebraska 31-28 in Ireland. The team posted about the uniforms that they will be wearing with the Duke game coming up.
The players will be wearing white helmets, black jerseys, and white pants against the Blue Devils. A special design will be on the “N” on the helmet, with it being colored like an American flag.

Duke has won the last three meetings against Northwestern. The two teams played last year, and Duke won by a score of 30-23 in Durham. The all-time series favors the Blue Devils as well, 11-10.
If QB Ryan Hilinski and RB Evan Hull are as sharp as they were in the season opener, the Wildcats’ offense will be running as smooth as ever. It’ll be interesting to see if the defense plays like they did in the 1st or 2nd half of the Nebraska game this time around.
Northwestern and Duke play Saturday at noon ET on FS1.
