A week after wearing chrome helmets against Stanford, Washington will introduce yet another lid for this weekend’s contest against Oregon.
And this time, it’s black matte.
Washington also will wear black uniforms to help celebrate the team’s blackout. This also will be the first contest in Seattle attended by ESPN’s College Football Gameday.
The Huskies are two touchdown underdogs at home, but black uniforms seem to spark upsets. They were wearing black when they upset Stanford last season.
As for the helmet, I like the idea, but it looks a lot like a high school helmet. Maybe it’s the ridiculously bright purple.
