The University of Michigan unveiled the commemorative jerseys that they will be wearing for the season opener against Alabama.

For the Cowboys Classic Game against Alabama, the Wolverines will don a white road jersey with maize across the shoulders and down to the sleeve. Blue piping will separate the maize from the white on the jersey. A blue block ‘M’ will appear on the left and right sleeve of the jersey and the player numbers are blue. Michigan will wear its traditional maize pants with the blue block ‘M’ on the left hip. The Wolverines’ adizero Smoke gloves will feature lyrics to the school’s fight song, “The Victors.”

The Wolverines will wear their traditional home and away jerseys for the duration of the season. It was also announced that after the Alabama game, Michigan will no longer place the players numbers on the helmets.

Michigan will be utilizing a new paint technology on the maize wings on the helmet in order to better highlight the most recognizable helmet in college football and create a more durable surface. The Wolverines will also add the American Flag to the back of the helmet starting this season.

U-M did leave open the possibility of a special jersey for a bowl game
