Photo: Rutgers To Wear Its American Flag Helmets For Game Against Navy

We've seen a number of college football programs bust out red, white and blue helmets over the past few weeks to honor our nation's servicemen. This Saturday, Rutgers will be the latest to join the movement, as the Scarlet Knights will bring back their "American Flag" themed lids for their game against Navy. Rutgers first unveiled them back in 2011.

Last season, Rutgers wore a different model of patriotic helmet for its game against Cincinnati.

The Scarlet Knights and Midshipmen kick off at 3:30 PM EST on the CBS Sports Network.
