Thanksgiving has come early in Blacksburg, VA, as Virginia Tech is wearing wacky turkey helmets for the Hokies’ game with Boston College.
Already earning the wrath of college football fashion watchers with awful turkey feet helmet earlier this year, Virginia Tech is now getting helmets with the HokieBird mascot on one side of the helmet and each player’s number on the other.
The new helmet was revealed by the school’s football equipment Twitter account two hours before Saturday’s kickoff.

While these are better than the turkey feet helmets, the hulking WWE-like turkey looks completely ridiculous. Virginia Tech should leave the crazy alternate uniforms and helmets to Oregon. Grade: D
