Notre Dame will commemorate its 1988 national championship team on senior night this season. 

The Irish will wear 1988 throwback uniforms for their Nov. 23 home game against Boston College, the university and Under Armour announced Tuesday. 

The changes compared to today's blue and gold uniforms appear subtle. The alternate uniforms have mesh numbers and a "150" stamped below the right shoulder to celebrate the amount of years college football has existed. 

The uniforms also comprise of black cleats with silver bottoms. The gray gloves feature gold lines stretching across the cream-colored inside. The pants might have the same cream color. 

Included with the reveal is a 48-hour sale of tickets for the game. Notre Dame offers two tickets for $88. That sale can be found here

So, how do people feel about the uniforms? Below is a closer look at the alternates, along with some Twitter reaction. 

Tradition never graduates.

To send off our seniors, we’re going back to ’88... and adding some modern flare.

I like how these uniforms have a pattern to represent the holes in the old school jerseys instead of actual holes. Noticed this on the Maryland uniforms too. https://t.co/pu4JXIfoMv

Let's look at the positives of the "new" Notre Dame uni: they don't have pinstripes on them.

That's a win.

I don't hate them. I'm just confused. There isn't a lot of effort here. I would have preferred an all-mesh front, but this doesn't really move me one way or another. #NDFBpic.twitter.com/R8dkS0iCXH

Re: the alt uniforms, I am curious if they will look more, uh, “alt” in photos/real life because they look like normal uniforms with mesh numbers.
