WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WTHR) - The Purdue Boilermakers have something special planned for Saturday's homecoming game against Maryland.

Special uniforms were designed for the game, intended to honor the 50th anniversary of NASA's Apollo 11 mission, where Purdue grad Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon.

The custom helmet includes Armstrong's words "One Giant Leap" on the back and there's an astronaut-themed patch on the jersey.
