NOTRE DAME (Indiana's NewsCenter) – Notre Dame Friday unveiled retro-style football uniforms that the Fighting Irish will wear against Michigan on September 10, 2011, to celebrate the first night game ever played at Michigan Stadium.

This will be the first prime-time meeting between the Irish and Wolverines since a 1990 matchup of top-five teams in South Bend.

Paying homage to the rich football tradition of Notre Dame football, the Irish “Under the Lights” uniform includes a white jersey with Kelly green lettering and two Kelly green shoulder stripes, old gold-colored pants, white socks with green stripes and white shoes. A large shamrock logo appears on the traditional gold helmet for thefirst time since the early 1960s. The years the Fighting Irish won National Championships are listed inside the bottom hem of the jersey.
