Vanderbilt is opening its new season with a new coach, so why not add a new helmet to the mix?

The school announced Monday that it would be wearing black matte helmets for its season opener against Temple on Thursday.

The helmet looks exactly the same as Vandy’s normal black helmet only this is in matte form. It’s sleek and will probably add a little extra excitement to a season that’s full of anticipation under new head coach Derek Mason.
