West Virginia breaks out 1970s throwback helmets (Photo)

West Virginia jumped in the way-back machine for Saturday’s game against Texas and came out with helmets from the 1970s.

The old-is-new-again lids feature the state of West Virginia and “WVU” on the side.

These are the helmets the Mountaineers wore from 1970 to 1979. Sadly, those teams weren’t much better than the one West Virginia is putting on the field against the Longhorns.

What do you think? Are these keepers?
