#95 helmet decal honoring Bubba Smith to be worn for first three football games
Spartan Radio Network’s Adam Ruff is reporting that the Michigan State Football team will wear a #95 decal on their helmets honoring the late Bubba Smith who passed away at the beginning of August.
According to Ruff, the decal will be worn for the first three games of the season (Youngstown State, Florida Atlantic, @Notre Dame).
Ruff does not reveal what the decal will look like, but I think it will look like the #44 decal the Michigan State Football team wore last season on the back of their helmet as a tribute to player Josh Rouse, who sustained a season-ending neck injury during the first game of the 2010 season.
This new decal worn for the first three games of the season, along with the Nike Pro Combat Uniforms to be worn against Michigan on Oct. 15, are the only style changes I know about for the 2011 Michigan State Football season.
