NC State to wear helmet with throwback wolf logo (Photo)

After getting blown out by Clemson 41-0 on the road over the weekend, North Carolina State will return home Saturday to take on Boston College. And when the Wolfpack take the field, the team will wear a new alternate helmet with the school’s old logo.

The helmet features a logo of the school’s mascot, Tuffy. The school has used the Tuffy logo as an alternate logo in contrast to the block “S” logo that has been in use in recent years.

In the offseason, the program unveiled “Pack in Black” helmets with wolf eyes on the back. Those helmets, along with an all-black uniform, were debuted against Old Dominion on September 6.

Both NC State and Boston College are seeking their first conference win on Saturday, so it’s an important game in the ACC's Atlantic Division.
