Michigan State to wear white helmets at home for first time since 1954

(via Michigan State)

Michigan State’s new all-white uniforms look pretty cool. And the helmets are making a bit of history too.

The white jerseys and pants the Spartans are wearing Sept. 9 will be accompanied by a white helmet. The game vs. Western Michigan will be the first time since 1954 that Michigan State has worn a white helmet at home. That’s 64 years if you don’t want to do math.

As you probably know, Michigan State’s traditional helmets are green. The Spartans wore white helmets twice at home in 1954. They lost both games that season.
