Michigan unveils alternate uniforms
By Brian Bennett
On Friday night, Michigan and Adidas unveiled their new “Go Blue” uniforms that the Wolverines will wear on Oct. 11 against Penn State, the third night game ever in the Big House.
Take a look:
From a team release:
"The first head-to-toe blue look in school history, this new look draws inspiration from the university’s past uniforms. The jersey and pants feature metallic blue, laser-cut stripes that shine under the lights while ultra-light, no-sew metallic numbers stretch with the jersey, and the compression base layer features the Michigan “M” on the bicep and "GO BLUE" across the chest."
Here's how the players reacted when they saw the uniforms for the first time:
Michigan, which has one of the most iconic looks in college football, also wore alternate uniforms for the first Big House night game vs. Notre Dame in 2011, later that year at Michigan State, in the 2012 opener against Alabama and in the 2013 Outback Bowl vs. South Carolina.
