Big Ten: Michigan Wolverines to wear pink against Illinois Saturday


Similar to several NFL, college and high school football teams, the Michigan Wolverines will wear pink to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month this Saturday against Illinois.

Michigan senior defensive back Jordan Kovacs leaked the news Wednesday stating, “Heard we’re wearing pink this weekend in support of breast cancer awareness,” via his Twitter account.

 

It is unknown what the Wolverines will wear this weekend, but odds are that the team’s gloves, towels and shoes will feature pink on them in some way.

Michigan will host Illinois in Ann Arbor at Michigan Stadium Saturday at 3:30 p.m on ABC/ESPN and ESPN3.
