The Purdue Boilermakers are back… and in black?

Forgive the crude AC/DC reference. Purdue released their game uniforms Wednesday night for their Thursday evening battle against Penn State to kick off the season.

The threads, which can be seen above, are all black helmet, top and pants with gold highlights. The Boilermakers are the host team and seem to want to open their season in style.

And they can do that with more than just the uniform Thursday evening in West Lafayette. Purdue is projected to be one of the top teams in the B1G West this season and a win over their East rivals in Penn State would certainly affirm they mean business.

The game is set for an 8 pm EST kick on FOX.
