Michigan State to wear 'Mean Green' uniforms against Maryland

Michigan State will have a new look when it hosts Maryland on Saturday at the Breslin Center.

The new combination is a part of Nike's "Nike Hyper Elite Disruption" line, and the Spartans are calling the odd hue "Mean Green." It comes with matching shoes and shorts that transition to a more familiar shade of green.

The switch comes in MSU's only meeting with No. 7 Maryland (and College GameDay will be in East Lansing for its first basketball show of the season). The Terrapins are Under Armour's flagship school and could have a counter move up their sleeve. They've already worn black uniforms and a throwback combination this season.
