Texas is only days away from its Sugar Bowl showdown with Georgia, and the Longhorns are making sure they're prepared.

On Friday, the Texas Football Twitter account revealed the Longhorns' helmets for the Sugar Bowl.

A crisp sticker with the Allstate Sugar Bowl logo is at the center-back of the helmet.

You can see the helmets here:

The Sugar Bowl will be Texas' first game against Georgia since 1984, when the Bulldogs beat the Longhorns in the Cotton Bowl.

Prior to the '84 Cotton Bowl, the two teams had played each other three times, with Texas emerging victorious in all prior games including the Orange Bowl in 1949.

Texas finished the 2018 regular season with a 9-3 record, securing a spot in the Big 12 Championship Game.

But a blown lead against the Oklahoma Sooners deprived the Longhorns of their first Big 12 title since 2009.

Texas is 1-2 in the Sugar Bowl game, while Georgia is 4-5.
