Oregon To Wear Black Helmets For Cal Game, Featuring More Puddles

Puddles will take center-stage on Thursday night as the Oregon Ducks face the Cal Bears in prime-time on ESPN. And it's probably for the best. The Ducks' lovable, yet overworked, mascot is a constant source of entertainment, and now Oregon will be carrying Puddles around throughout the game. In addition to Puddles' likeness on both shoulders of the jersey, the Ducks' helmets will also feature the mascot front and center.

And, because this is Oregon, the helmets will be flat black with the bright, neon 'O'.

And because the theme of this jersey set is "Fightin' Ducks," you knew Puddles had to make an appearance on the helmet. Here's the duck, which will be plastered across the foreheads of the team.
