The Michigan Wolverines have been priming their fans for weeks for a Maize Out of the Big House ahead of Saturday night’s game with Washington. However, it appears the team has different plans.
If the team’s social media accounts are to be believed, Michigan will debut its long-rumored all-blue combination for Saturday night’s game.
Some had speculated that Michigan would follow suit with the fans and wear its all-Maize uniform combination they debuted against Florida in 2017. However, a different look is coming regardless.
The all-blue combo has been making the rounds on social media since recruiting visits resumed this summer. Several recruits had been photographed wearing them and the blues have been in the rumored rotation ever since.
At the end of the day, it ultimately won’t affect how Michigan plays, but a primetime stage calls for some different types of atmospheres. We will see the one that the Big House has on display Saturday night.
Michigan and Washington kick off Saturday’s game at 8:14 p.m. ET on ABC. Michigan enters the contest as a 6.5-point favorite.
