Virginia Tech's Russell Athletic Bowl helmets feature 'Fighting Gobbler' logo, Sandy Hook ribbon

Virginia Tech finally gets this alternate helmets thing right.

After that turkey track thing and that cartoon turkey thing, this one looks just right to me. This logo is being retired after 2012, so this is nearly a retro thing we have going here.

That ribbon on the back is a tribute to Connecticut school shooting victims, a tragedy on which Blacksburg can extend a unique kind of sympathy.
