Michigan and adidas have teamed up to design a commemorative jersey for the Wolverines season opening appearance in the Cowboys Classic against Alabama on Sept. 1.
The uniform will only be used for the one game against the defending national champions in Dallas. According to the school, the traditional home and road uniforms will be used for the remainder of the regular season.
"From time to time, whether it's a regular-season or bowl game, our coaches and players enjoy an opportunity to choose an alternate jersey to wear," athletic director Dave Brandon said in the official release. "The coaches and seniors have worked with adidas to create something special for the season opener in Texas."
According to Brady Hoke, the players and staff like the look for the season opener. The adidas gloves, seen to the right, will feature the lyrics of the the school's fight song, "The Victors."
Michigan wore alternate uniforms on three separate occasions in 2011. After breaking out the retro uniforms against Notre Dame, adidas also set up the Wolverines with a unique look for the Michigan State game and finally in the Sugar Bowl victory against Virginia Tech.
Brandon told the media in May that the Wolverines would not stop exploring alternate uniforms, so this unveiling should come as no surprise.
Other than some adjustments to the piping and trim, the design seems true to Michigans traditional maize and blue look. What do you think of the uniforms? Let us know in the comment section below or chime in on Twitter @EyeOnCFB.
