Nebraska unveiled its alternate uniform for the 2019 season and it's an ode to the Blackshirts. Literally. 

The Huskers will wear a black top with white trim numbers and white letters. The white helmet also features a black "N" instead of the classic red. The well-known skull-and-crossbones logo is displayed on the sleeve caps.

The school did not announce which game Nebraska will don the uniforms for. 

"I haven’t seen them up close yet, but I think it’s pretty cool that Coach Frost has embraced that tradition," NU defensive coordinator Erik Chinander said after Monday's practice. "I don’t know when we’re wearing them or if we’re wearing them or what’s going to happen, but I think it’s pretty cool."

Take a look for yourselves here.
