Eastern Michigan's game Saturday against Army will now double as a geography lesson.
The Eagles will have the outline of the state of Michigan on the right side of their helmets this weekend. Check it out. It doesn't immediately pop out to you, but once you see it like the FedEx arrow, you can't unsee it.
And that's not all, either. The helmet stripe features feathers, but you wouldn't be the only person to think they look like wheat at first.
The helmets get points for originality, and they're a vast improvement on the drab matte gray helmets EMU has been wearing this season. You can check out more pictures here. Do you like them? Let us know in the comments.
