Arizona on Saturday will wear uniforms honoring the U.S.S. Arizona, a sunken battleship that saw the lives of 1,177 crewmen lost during the attack on Pearl Harbor. A bell from the ship resides on U of A’s campus and rings “seven times on the third Wednesday of every month at 12:07 p.m. to honor the achievements of The University of Arizona and its community.”

The Wildcats’ uniforms will incorporate multiple features from the ship into the design, explained in the tweets below.
