On November 16, the Northwestern Wildcats will be wearing red, white and blue jerseys to show their appreciation for the brave men and women who serve in the armed forces. After the game, the jerseys will be auctioned off to raise money for the Wounded Warriors Project.

Unfortunately for Northwestern, their uniforms were criticized for what appeared to be blood streaks on the flag. The university and Under Armour stood by their story that it was not blood, but a “distressed” look.

Regardless of what the design was supposed to be, the uniforms were popular enough that they have sold out one week before the game.

The uniforms showed up as sold out on the official website and there are currently no plans to sell them again:

For now, there are no plans to sell the jerseys again, but the university “may reassess selling the jerseys again in the future given the high demand but [the school] currently has no plans to sell the jerseys again.”
