This will be the first prime-time meeting between the Wolverines and Irish since a 1990 matchup of top five teams in South Bend. ESPN will broadcast the game nationally at 8 p.m. EDT.
“We are excited about playing in this intense rivalry, and this historic night game provides an opportunity to wear a retro-looking uniform that pays homage to our rich history,” said Michigan head football coach Brady Hoke. “Our players like the throwback uniforms and it will be something that is exciting for the fans.”
Highlighting a fusion of uniform design elements from different eras of Michigan football, the Wolverines’
“Under the Lights” adidas jersey features a large block M on the chest, player numbers above the heart,
repeating striped sleeves and a quilting stitch design on the letters and numbers. Player numbers also
appear on Michigan’s famous winged helmet for the first time since the late 1960s. To celebrate the
Wolverines’ rich football history, “132 Years of Championship Football” is stitched on the inside collar and the years that Michigan won the National Championship are featured on the inside bottom hem of the

new uniforms,” said Notre Dame head football coach Brian Kelly. “It seems fitting that the two schools
with the two best winning percentages in college football play in this historic game. I know our players are looking forward to the contest and both teams’ new uniforms will only add to the excitement in the Big
House on September 10.”
Paying homage to the rich football tradition of Notre Dame football, the Irish “Under the Lights” adidas
uniform includes a white jersey with Kelly green lettering and two Kelly green shoulder stripes, old goldcolored pants, white socks with green stripes and white shoes. A large shamrock logo appears on the
traditional gold helmet for the first time since the early 1960s. The years the Irish won National
Championships are listed inside the bottom hem of the jersey.
“We wanted to celebrate the long-standing heritage between two of the most successful programs in
college football history for this special Under the Lights game,” said Jon Yuska, director of sports licensing design, adidas. “Michigan and Notre Dame’s jerseys are two of the most iconic in all of sports and these new vintage-inspired uniforms highlight design cues from throughout the schools’ rich football traditions.”
