With an upcoming game against Army this weekend, Rutgers has decided to unveil patriotic helmets to show their support for the Armed Forces. We have seen a few teams across the nation like North Carolina do the same already this season, but the detail of the Rutgers helmets definitely gives them an edge.
In particular, I’m a huge fan of the distressed chrome look in addition to the “R” resembling an American flag. While I wouldn’t go as far as to say the design is more aesthetically pleasing than the black Boise State helmets we showed you recently, the fact that Rutgers is showing support for the men and women who protect our country is certainly worth some bonus points.
