Michigan will hit the field with a new look at least once in 2017 — and it will be Jim Harbaugh-approved.
The Wolverines will wear alternate uniforms for at least one game in the upcoming season. Harbaugh played a role in designing them, he told MLive’s Nick Baumgardner on Friday night.
Ok so, Michigan is going to wear alternate uniforms in at least one game this year. Harbaugh helped design them. All he'll say.

There were instantly some guesses from fans as to what Harbaugh-inspired uniforms might be.

"Alternate uniform" for Harbaugh probably means that there's a milk pouch with drinking straw. And maybe Warby Parker frames.

Unfortunately, khakis and milk pouches wouldn’t allow Michigan players to attack the field with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind. But Michigan’s alternate uniforms should be an interesting look with whatever tweaks are made. Jordan Brand started designing Michigan’s uniforms last season.
There are plenty of big games on Michigan’s 2017 schedule in which the Wolverines could break out the new look. They open their season against Florida in Dallas, host Michigan State on Oct. 7, play at Penn State on Oct. 21 (likely in prime time) and, of course, finish the regular season at home against Ohio State on Nov. 25.
