Michigan State, you're up.

The Spartans are the latest team to add a new wrinkle to their uniforms as they donned green "HydroChrome" helmets for their game Saturday afternoon against rival Michigan, MLive.com reports.

The helmet looks fairly similar to the standard ones the team wears but appears to be polished for a slick look with a silver stripe, Spartan decal, black chinstrap and a black facemask.

According to the report, Oregon has already donned a similar helmet look this season. TCU was supposed to break out its version of the "HydroChrome" helmet against Iowa State earlier this month, but the plan was nixed at the last minute. TCU instead wore them last week against Baylor.

Earlier Saturday, Oklahoma State came out in its all-orange look with new Pistol Pete helmets.

Last season, Michigan State wore new uniforms against Michigan, meaning it's the second straight contest between the two schools where the Spartans have a new look for their rival.
