Toledo wearing helmets with a pink ribbon against Northern Illinois

Toledo is joining the pink helmet brigade against Northern Illinois Wednesday night.

The Rockets are going to wear their traditional matte dark blue helmets with a pink ribbon on the side. The facemask will also have pink ribbon accents and the team's Under Armour gloves will also be pink.

Here's a better look at the facemask. From far away, it just looks like pink speckles.

The bottom of the back of the helmet will also read "Power in Pink."

The school also gave free tickets to 100 breast cancer survivors. Toledo is wearing pink now in November to acknowledge that cancer awareness is not just limited to October.
