Michigan State unveils new football uniforms
Friday April 24th, 2015

Michigan State unveiled new football uniforms for the 2015 season on Thursday.

The uniforms honor "ancient Spartan roots" through their design and detail. The Spartans will wear green jerseys with white numbers at home with either green or white pants, and on the road they will wear white jerseys and pants that feature green numbers.

The new package also includes an alternate home jersey and an alternate bronze helmet.

From the Nike release on the uniforms:

"The phalanx battle formation, perfected by ancient Spartan warriors, represents an impenetrable unified front and is known as one of the most feared tactical formations in history. The all-new alternate Spartan football uniform brings this story to life, visually representing the phalanx when the team stands side-by-side on the field. Influenced by Spartan shields, bronze sleeve caps house the MSU logo and pay homage to the gridiron warrior's homeland. The alternate jersey also features subtle bronze highlights throughout the design."
