SOUTH BEND, Ind. — For the first time in Notre Dame history, the football team will wear a helmet featuring the school's interlocking "ND" logo.
Notre Dame unveiled its home and away jerseys Tuesday morning prior to revealing the Shamrock Series outfit. Compared to previous Shamrock Series looks crafted by adidas — like 2012's — Under Armour took a fairly conservative route on their first one, sticking with the navy blue and gold scheme.

Coach Brian Kelly praised the look as fitting with the traditions and history of Notre Dame.
"The helmet has the elements of the dome, the sketching on the helmet itself," Kelly said. "They have a concept that they're using that maybe from a distance that you don't see much, but as you get closer, you see the mosaics on the sleeves. You'll see it in the gloves that are inside the dome itself, and I really like the way that they have brought together not just football but Notre Dame in the uniforms, as well.
"I think they've taken the time. That's the point. In this very short time that we've come together, they've taken really the time to look at Notre Dame and our unique qualities and put them in what we're representing in our uniforms. I really feel good about that relationship.
"Now our players just need to play really well in those cool uniforms. That's the most important thing."
