HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Hours after the University of Hawaii football team donned special red, white, and blue Under Armour uniforms in a 48-10 rout of UNLV on "Military Night," the school began a two week auction of the game-worn jerseys in a fundraiser benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project.

Bidding on the jerseys, which are black and have the "stars" of the American flag on the right shoulder and the "stripes" on the left, began after the game ended on Saturday. The price for each jersey opened at $100.

The backs of the jerseys feature words like "Freedom," "Honor," "Courage" and "Service" where players' last names would traditionally appear.

The auction is being held online. To place a bid for one of the jerseys, click here.

100 percent of the proceeds from the auction benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, which helps military service members who have been injured in the line of duty adjust after returning home to their families and communities.

Bidding on the jerseys ends on December 9, 2012.
