New jerseys are sweet. New cleats are pretty cool too. But in my opinion, the most exciting uniform bit in football is the helmet — and the Washington Huskies have some really, really cool helmets for the fall.
Photos of these helmets started swirling on Twitter late last night — they are super-shiny chrome lids with the purple “W” and facemask — and they look pretty good to me. The photos were tweeted out by Tyson Losness, a student at Washington.
You can also see a special black matte helmet in the background — the one that leaked in January. Huskies fans have to be pumped about these new helmets, particularly the chrome ones, if they do get confirmed as legitimate. They’ve got to keep up with the Ducks, after all.
