For the second straight year students at Michigan took part in what is quickly becoming the most amusing -- if not bizarre -- tradition in college hoops. And for the second straight year it was a smashing success.

In an effort to make the visiting Nebraska Cornhuskers "feel at home," the Michigan student section held a "jort out" in which all the students who attended the game were encouraged to wear jean shorts. Perhaps not the most practical choice when it was 14 degrees in Ann Arbor, Mich., but since when have college students been concerned about conformity?




Michigan's student section, the Maize Rage, started the tradition last year in a 62-47 win over the Cornhuskers.

This year's squad isn't ranked as highly as the 2013 team (that crew was undefeated and No. 2 in the country at the time), but the Wolverines held their own on Wednesday. Ranked 10th in the country, Michigan cruised past Nebraska, 79-50.
