College football teams across the country unveiled tributes — from halftime shows to special uniforms — on Saturday in honor of the 20th anniversary of 9/11.

The big picture: Some schools honored alumni and veterans on their uniforms, others put together tributes to remember those who died. Nearly all held a moment of silence before kickoff.

Driving the news: The Army football team stormed into the stadium, each player carrying an American flag to honor the servicemen and women who died in the 9/11 attacks.

A tweet previously embedded here has been deleted or was tweeted from an account that has been suspended or deleted.
  • Army head coach Jeff Monken said that on the anniversary the team was focusing on the veterans and first responders who ran toward the attack to help others.
  • "When people were running from the tragedy, they were running toward it. We got a whole team of guys and corps of cadets that have the spirit to serve and it's what they do," Monken said.

Boston College on Friday unveiled special edition red bandana uniforms in honor of Welles Crowther, an alum who died 20 years ago while rescuing people in the South Tower of the World Trade Center.

  • Crowther saved 18 people from the tower using a red bandana to cover people's mouths and noses from the smoke and debris.

Thirty-seven Rutgers alumni died in the attack, and the Scarlet Knights memorialized all of them on Saturday's football helmets.

  • Players also had "Never Forget" emblazoned on their gloves, helmets and the sides of their jerseys.

Fans and players at Ohio State's stadium held a moment of silence for the nearly 3,000 lives lost 20 years ago, and a B2 bomber flew over the stadium — prompting "U-S-A" chants to echo through the stadium.

Notre Dame football players did 20 push-ups to mark the event's anniversary.

Foo Fighters will play U.S. Bank Stadium in August, with proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test required for concertgoers.

Flashback: Last week, the band canceled plans to perform next year's rescheduled tour stop at the University of Minnesota's Huntington Bank Stadium, blaming the U's "refusal to agree to the band's COVID policies."

Data: Bureau of Labor Statistics, Congressional Budget Office; Chart: Axios Visuals

Yes, the pandemic has created unusual temporary labor market dynamics. But in the bigger picture, the 2010s were a golden age for companies seeking cheap labor. The 2020s are not.

The big picture: In the 2010s, the massive millennial generation was entering the workforce, the massive baby bo0m generation was still hard at work, and there was a multi-year hangover from the deep recession caused by the global financial crisis.

As Saturday marks the 49th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court's landmark decision that legalized abortion access in the U.S., advocates warn the ruling is "more at risk now than ever."

The big picture: The Supreme Court in December heard a challenge to a Mississippi 15-week abortion ban that could throw Roe's survival into question, or at least narrow its scope.
