Michigan’s wearing these all-maize uniforms vs. Florida, like Color Rush Minions

Do you trust Nike to pull this off?

No. 11 Michigan will wear all-yellow (“maize,” in Michigan lingo) alternate uniforms on Saturday, Sept. 2 vs. No. 17 Florida at Jerry World, Nike’s announced after rumors.


Florida will also wear one-color uniforms, like an NFL Color Rush game, but the Gators wearing blue is a little less newsworthy.

The game contract allows Michigan, the designated road team, to wear “light” colors, rather than necessarily white.

Michigan has one of the best and most-beloved regular uniforms in college football, but its alternate uniforms haven’t always fared well.

Those were Adidas, though, so maybe Nike can make these look cool? Maybe?

We’ll see!

Michigan has also worn all-maize before ... in 1928, a game known as “the Canary Disaster.”
