Here's more, via the school:

To honor those who have served and currently serve our country, players will don a camouflage TECHFIT baselayer with an oversized metallic silver “U” overlaid on top of it, khaki socks and camouflage adizero 5-Star 4.0 gloves that all incorporate the colors of U.S. Army Delta Force uniforms. Prominently featuring an oversized metallic silver “U” logo, the adizero 5-Star 4.0 gloves feature 4-way stretch mesh for compression fit and GripTack 2.0 for consistent control in all weather conditions.

Accenting the camouflage theme, the helmet, jersey and pants are a bold black and feature metallic silver oversized “U” logos on the shoulder pads, pants and helmet. The jerseys are highlighted with player numbers in the Hurricanes’ signature orange colorway and outlined with metallic silver. Additionally, the pants feature metallic silver striping on the right leg that incorporates hurricane style cuts and patterns, while left leg features “Miami’ in oversized metallic silver text. To cap off the look, the “Canes” moniker is strategically placed across the chest in metallic silver with orange outlines.

To complete the military homage, the Hurricanes will debut the new Delta Force inspired Dark Ops 2016 adizero 5-Star 5.0 x KEVLAR® and 2016 Freak x KEVLAR® cleats, constructed from a durable, flexible canvas – similar to military accessories and footwear. Embroidered stripes pay tribute to the insignia found on elite forces uniforms, and stitching reinforced with KEVLAR® provides durability and strength. The 5-STAR FRAME, featuring a KEVLAR® reinforced plate, is the optimum blend of lightweight, strength and traction.

Whether you're a fan or not, it's always great to see college football programs honoring our troops. What do you think, Miami fans?
