Michigan to wear all maize uniforms in opener vs. Florida

Aug 29, 2017, 8:39 AM

For the first time since 1928, the Michigan Wolverines will take the field for their season opener against Florida Saturday in a maize-colored jersey instead of the traditional blue or white.

Michigan, one of the more traditional college football programs when it comes to on-field fashion, has tinkered a bit with its uniforms since 2016, when it became the first team in the nation to wear Jordan Brand uniforms.

Florida, who is outfitted by Nike, will be wearing a specially designed all-blue uniform for the game, the AdvoCare Classic, which will be played at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

And here’s a closer look at Florida’s uniforms for the contest.
