These helmets could be a part of MACtion this year.
New helmets and jerseys are a big part of every college football season, and Akron appears to have unveiled a new gold (and rather shiny) helmet for 2014. The Zips have made considerable progress in Terry Bowden’s first two years and improved to 5-7 last year.
The new gold helmets resemble Baylor or Notre Dame’s recent shiny designs, with one having a blue facemask, while the other has a gold front.
Overall, this is a pretty sharp look for Akron. And who knows, maybe it’s just what the Zips need to make a bowl in 2014.
