The University of Nebraska held a Google+ Hangout today featuring head Husker equipment manager Jay Terry. If you were paying attention, you might have noticed something odd.
In the backdrop was the standard Nebraska helmet along with the alternate dome and jersey for this weekend’s game, but something was out of place.
Could it be? A white “N” on a scarlet helmet? Well, technically that’s a crimson helmet, native to Norman, Oklahoma.
However, if you paid attention to rumors this past summer regarding a black Nebraska helmet, after the initial surge of excitement at the Huskers wearing such equipment, the accepted explanation was that the gear was merely a Texas Tech shell with the Huskers’ signature letter affixed.
Now, Nebraska’s wearing black helmets this weekend.
Could we be seeing the prototype for a new alternate uniform? Might crimson turn to scarlet? Stay tuned.
