Michigan is making the school's legendary "Go Blue" cheer a reality this season.

For the first time ever (according to the school) the Wolverines will wear blue from "head to toe" for their Oct. 11 game against Penn State. The team revealed these new alternate uniforms on Friday:

From the school's release:

"The first head-to-toe blue look in school history, this new look draws inspiration from the university's past uniforms. The jersey and pants feature metallic blue, laser-cut stripes that shine under the lights while ultra-light, no-sew metallic numbers stretch with the jersey, and the compression base layer features the Michigan 'M' on the bicep and 'GO BLUE' across the chest."

There's no telling how the tradition-loving folks up in Ann Arbor will feel about these new unis, which look pretty good. Perhaps the fireworks-hating crowd has something different to say?
