The college basketball season tips off on Friday with just about every Division I program hitting the floor for their first game of the season. Among those will be the No. 12 Michigan State Spartans participating in the Armed Forces Classic and squaring off with No. 10 Arizona.
It in the second time that MSU will be a part of the Armed Forces Classic event and third time if you include the 2011 Carrier Classic against North Carolina. And almost every year the event is held, both teams in the game(s) sport special uniforms to honor the military. On Friday, Michigan State will be rocking these slick black camouflage uni’s.

The Spartans and Wildcats will tip off the two-game event from the Stan Sheriff Center on the campus of the University of Hawaii, Friday night at 7 p.m. ET and can be seen on ESPN. The back end of the doubleheader is equally as impressive, when MSU’s Big Ten rival Indiana opposes Kansas, another pair of top-15 teams.
Both schools are sponsored by Adidas, who designed specialty uniforms for both schools to wear on Friday.
