Florida Atlantic is on the move to the C-USA from the Sun Belt and they're pretty excited about it. Namely, they made a semi-palatable looking cake, but they also revealed new uniforms that are much more owl-centric than their previous duds.

This new helmet is in addition to the host of new helmets unveiled by the school at their spring game.
