The Detroit News
In a twist, though, the team will wear matching white pants, though. It is the last season of the school's contract with Adidas.

Michigan will wear all-white uniforms during road games this season as first reported, a source confirmed to The Detroit News on Friday night.

This will be the final season Adidas supplies uniforms for all Michigan teams and according to, which first reported the news, the request to wear the 1974 all-white throwback uniform was made by coach Jim Harbaugh.

The Wolverines went 10-1 in 1974 with their lone loss coming to Ohio State, 12-10, in Columbus.

Michigan's main road uniform in recent seasons has been maize pants, and a white jersey with maize piping and blue trim.

Michigan switches from Adidas to Nike as its uniform supplier starting in 2016-17.

The Michigan Wolverines will wear traditional white jerseys on the road this season.
