For the remainder of the season, they need to just wear their traditional uniforms.

A little off topic: I wish M and Ohio would both wear their home uniforms when they face each other next year. I saw BYU and Utah both wearing their home uniforms last week and 1) I forgot about that rule change and 2) I wish I could see that more often. It would be great for M and Ohio to do it since their colors are so different.

I'm with you there. There's a strong tradition of UM and OSU wearing road jerseys in the opposite stadium, but going color on color would be great. Note USC and UCLA have been playing with this, too (they have a tradition of doing that against each other) and it looks great.

False. That rule has been changed. When USC-UCLA first did this a couple of years ago, the rule charged the offending team a time out, which the other team voluntarily matched, but the rule was then stricken if there is agreement between teams.

And teams have been able to wear home unis on the road at Georgia Tech and LSU for a long time now.

I think the history behind USC-UCLA both wearing home uniforms is cool (because they both played their home games in the LA Coliseum for many years), but they have the history behind it. IMO, the Color-vs-white looks just fine and should continue to be the matchup. I found it disrespecful as hell when tOSU wore their pro combat unis in 2009 and 2010.

They will be wearing the TechFit road uniforms from last year that were worn against northwestern, but the cuts of the jerseys have been fixed. Michigan has been wearing TechFits the past two weeks if you haven't noticed. A very notable difference in the jerseys is the end of the "elephant tusk" piping on the sides-

Oh snap Frankie, do you like the piping on the uniform? Who gives an F. Quit being so gay. It is football fergodsakes. Let the players wear what they want. Get off your asses between the 20s and cheer you old grey hairs. That kills us when you are sitting with your hands under your "oopsicrappedmypants" undergarment. Let your great grand kids go to the game, so we can get some 12th man action going.

"I don't care what they do with the away uniforms, just don't mess with our helmets."

Hey, here's what our helmets look with a matte finish - - -

"Kick ass!  Flat blue looks awesome."
"I love it."
"Matte helmets look good."

The reason why there had to be color vs white jerseys  was to satisfy black and white TV, if both teams wore home  colors you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference.

 

No one asked but there you go...NOW GET OFF MY LAWN, your messing with my reception on my rabbit ears.

...some source material to confirm that?  Sounds logical...but could also be a myth since college football (and most of the other major sports) predate television.

I wouldn't be surprised if road jerseys (and their tendency towards white) predated television since even people in attendence at games might have trouble following the action if two teams had even remotely similar colors.
