The Michigan football program will have a special addition to their uniforms on Saturday when the Wolverines take on the Iowa Hawkeyes in the Big Ten Championship Game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Ahead of the game, the Wolverines unveiled a special uniform tribute that players will wear honoring the victims of the Oxford High School shooting in Michigan earlier this week.

Michigan will be wearing a patch to “honor all victims, survivors, and community members,” which took the lives of four students: Tate Myre, Hana St. Juliana, Madisyn Baldwin, and Justin Shilling. Seven others were injured in the attack.

The patch includes a blue heart for each student who lost their lives, along with the letters “TM” and number “42” to honor football player Tate Myre, who lost his life when he attempted to disarm the gunman.

“Our uniforms will feature a special logo during Saturday’s Big Ten Championship Game,” Michigan announced. “The shape is of Oxford’s ‘Block O’, meant to honor all victims, survivors, and community members,” Michigan said in a statement. “The ‘TM’ and ’42’ pay tribute to football player Tate Myre. Tate, Hana St. Juliana, Madisyn Baldwin, and Justin Shilling, whose lives were senselessly lost earlier this week, are represented by four blue hearts.

“We are proud to represent the state of Michigan and all of its communities.”

The No. 2 Wolverines and No. 13 Hawkeyes will take the field at Lucas Oil Stadium on Saturday at 8:00 p.m. ET on FOX.
