Western Michigan, UNLV show off patriotic helmets in honor of Veterans Day

If Veterans Day is on the calendar, then that means college football programs will be mixing in a little stars and stripes into the uniform design this week. Western Michigan and UNLV are among the schools getting in the patriotic spirit this week with their helmets of choice this week.

Western Michigan is in action tonight on a busy night of MAC football. Earlier this week, images of the white helmet with a bronco logo filled with the stars and stripes were shown off by the Western Michigan equipment staff.

Filling in the logo with the same pattern used for the American flag is one of the trendiest ways to alter a football uniform. And UNLV has the same idea with their helmet for this week as well. The black helmet with red chrome facemask will have the pattern filling in the “UNLV” font on the side of the helmet.

Look for more of these types of themed uniforms this week as well as teams pay tribute to our nation’s veterans.
