BYU helmet

If you missed the Armed Forces Bowl — and shame on you if you did because it had a great ending — you missed BYU and Tulsa paying homage to the armed forces by turning parts of their helmets camouflage.

The Golden Hurricane had camo in the "Tulsa" part of the helmet and on the stripes that line the top of the dome. BYU turned its signature blue "Y" a lovely shade of camouflage and also did the stripes on the top of the helmet.

It wasn't quite on the level of the head-to-toe camo motif Army pulled off last year in a win over the Virginia Military Institute, but it still struck the right note in keeping with the afternoon's military theme.

While BYU rarely messes with its helmet — the blue "Y" has been a staple for decades — Tulsa has been creative all year. In fact, Friday's game actually marked the sixth different helmet the Golden Hurricane have worn this year. The 24-21 defeat also marked the first time this season they've lost with an alternate helmet design.
