In honor of Veterans Day, last Saturday we saw quite a few teams display appreciation and recognition for those in the military, both active and retired, with special alterations to their jersey or helmet. That will continue at Rutgers Saturday, as the Scarlet Knights will wear special patriotic helmets for Military Appreciation Day at High Points Solutions Stadium.

Military personnel and their families receive discounted ticket prices as the Scarlet Knights (5-3, 2-2) host Cincinnati (7-2, 4-1) for a noon kickoff.
The Scarlet Knights wore very similar helmets last year when they faced Army. The only difference between the two helmets seems to be the color of the facemask.
Overall, it’s a very nice gesture, and these helmets are the best-looking of any of the military-themed helmets I’ve seen so far this season.
