Michigan Unveils Uniforms for Alabama Game

Adidas has designed a sleek alternate uniform for Michigan’s opening game against Alabama at Cowboys Stadium on Sept. 1.

It will be the Wolverines only time this season wearing them. According to the school, the traditional home and away uniforms will be worn for the rest of the season.

We’ll see if it provides them with a little bit of a spark against the defending champs. They are going to need it as the Tide will give them all they can handle.

Nike set the trend a few years back when they created the signature gloves with the teams logo’s on them. Ever since then, the major sponsors have been trying to do the same. It looks like Adidas created a winner.

The Adidas gloves players will wear has the lyrics to the schools fight son, “The Victors.” That’s something we haven’t seen yet, and I’m sure it won’t be the last time we see it either.

Adidas has stepped their game up as far as uniforms go. Texas A&M, who just entered the SEC, showed off their sharp new Adidas Lone Star TECHFIT uniforms, giving the Aggies a new look as they head in to their new conference.

This isn’t the first time Michigan has worn alternate jerseys. In 2011, they wore their retro uniforms against Notre Dame, then again against Michigan State. They wore them a final time against Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl game, where the Wolverines came out victorious.

If the new 2012 commemorative jerseys have the affect the 2011 ones did, Michigan has feel good.

However, Alabama is a whole different monster than the Irish, Spartans and Hokies.
