In 1947, Coach “Biggie” Munn brought the school colors of green and white back to Michigan State football.

Biggie Munn can be credited with giving Michigan State football the green helmets with white stripes, as well as the white pants with green stripes. Both contributions have been altered in some way in 64 years, but can be found on the present team’s uniforms.

Biggie Munn's final record at Michigan State was 54 - 9 - 2 earning a National Championship in 1952, a Big Ten Championship in 1953 and a Rose Bowl victory in 1954. Munn was voted College Football Coach of the Year in 1952 and was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1959. His teams held a 24-game winning streak and represented the Big Ten in Michigan State's inaugural season in the conference at the Rose Bowl in 1953.
