USC is famous for maintaining more or less the same look for what seems like eternity. But perhaps the Trojans are also jumping on the new uniforms/helmets bandwagon.
A tipster emailed BroBible with what are allegedly Instagram photos of a student assistant to USC’s equipment manager wearing a new USC matte black helmet. The Instagram collage includes the caption “Playing with prototypes at work” and is tagged at USC Heritage Hall.
Another alleged student assistant in the photo is modeling a shinier, updated version of the Trojans’ current helmet but with a deeper shade of red and a black face mask instead of the normal gray one.
But it’s the matte black one we’re really focused on. If it is in fact real, we like how the red-and-yellow Trojans logo pops on the black. And if it is in fact real, then these two student managers will be getting a talking to in regards to revealing new helmets before they’re supposed to.
