The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are heavy underdogs in their upcoming College Football Playoff game against the Clemson Tigers. But when they do face off against Clemson on Dec. 29, they’ll have a brand new look.
According to Bleacher Report writer Matt Hayes, Notre Dame and uniform manufacturer Under Armour are planning to unveil a new uniform for the College Football Playoff tomorrow.

The Fighting Irish have worn their traditional dark blue, gold, and white for most of the season, though some fans are eager to see a little bit of green on the uniform in tribute to some of the great uniforms of old.
Hopefully you outfit them with those away uniforms with GREEN numbers! pic.twitter.com/6mufup7Yhy

Not a Notre Dame fan but in my opinion they should always wear these uniforms at home.

Notre Dame is coming off a 12-0 regular season and are in the College Football Playoff for the first time since the tournament began.
But Notre Dame’s opponent, Clemson, is also undefeated. The Tigers have a 13-0 record and a coming off an absolute throttling of Pitt in the ACC Championship Game.
As a result, Notre Dame are currently double-digit underdogs, with some outlets having an 11-point spread or higher.
