Both teams have been experimenting with the new uniforms in practice and fans have been anticipating some kind of release all summer. The uniforms look to be modeled after the Nike’s NFL Color Rush line introduced last year following the same solid-color theme.
Both teams will be wearing their “dark” uniforms with Florida being the home team.
The Gators will wear all blue (pants and jerseys), blue accessories and the double-logo white helmets from previous years.
The Wolverines will wear all maize with maize and blue accessories and their patented winged helmet in maize and blue.
The University of Florida continues to be one of the faces of Nike’s collegiate brand and The University of Michigan is reaping the benefits of their recent switch from Adidas to Nike in the summer of 2015 that has already seen the Jumpman brand used on athletics apparel.
The No. 17 Gators and No. 11 Wolverines kickoff the 2017 season in North Texas at AT&T Stadium on Saturday, September 2nd. The game will be broadcast on ABC at 3:30 p.m. and will be called by Joe Tessitore, Todd Blackledge, Holly Rowe.
