On January 1st, 2013 the Michigan Wolverines will play the South Carolina Game Cocks in the 2013 Outback Bowl. Watching an actual wolverine and game cock duke it out might be an interesting way to settle this score, but fear not, no animals fighting will be involved. Instead the 10-2 Game Cocks come into this game having not made the SEC championship game for another year, while the Wolverines come in with an 8-4 record.
This will be the final game for both teams this season. In commemoration of the bowl game, the Wolverines will wear special uniforms just for the occasion. The uniforms resemble the special unis worn by Brady Hoke’s team in their first game this season against another SEC opponent, the University of Alabama. The uniforms are white with blue on the shoulders, instead of yellow against Alabama, with maize numbers on the shoulders as well as maize numbers on the back. Those numbers on the backs of the jerseys will have navy outlining, while the navy on the helmets will be flat. In addition, the uniforms have a special Outback Bowl patch on the left chest of the jersey. The pants remain maize, and Adidas, the company responsible for all of Michigan’s uniforms, produced the entire ensemble.
