Matte helmets are so hot right now in college football and it appears the Cincinnati Bearcats will be the next team to get them.
ESPN analyst and former Georgia star LB David Pollack tweeted this out on Wednesday in advance of Cincinnati’s home game against Pitt on Thursday night that Pollack will cover for ESPN: “These new Cincinnati helmets are off the chains!!!!! twitpic.com/arfoht”
It’s unclear if the helmets will be worn during Thursday’s game or later in the season.
We have to admit, the cherry-red matte look is spectacular, and pops much more than Cincy’s normal black helmet. The Bearcats have had black lids for the last three decades but should put this red alternate helmet into regular rotation based on the reaction it is already getting. Grade: A
