Virginia Tech to wear another new helmet for the Russell Athletic Bowl

USA TODAY Sports

Virginia Tech has not been shy about wearing new and...interesting...helmets this season. Recall that earlier this year, they took the field wearing these "Hokie tracks" helmets. With the Russell Athletic Bowl matchup against Rutgers approaching, Virginia Tech is at it once again, this time by joining the matte-colored helmets movement. This is a sneak peek at the helmets the team will wear against Rutgers.

This isn't the first time that Virginia Tech has worn special helmets for its bowl game. In the 2011 Orange Bowl loss to Stanford, the Hokies wore these "pumpkin" helmets. Virginia Tech isn't the only school debuting special uniforms for its bowl game. The Cincinnati Bearcats will wear specially designed checkered helmets against Duke in the Belk Bowl, while Michigan is set to wear an entirely new uniform for its Outback Bowl matchup with South Carolina.
