Longest Running Helmet Streak to End Tomorrow Night

Tomorrow night, two teams that will hire wear anything to get their struggling programs to resemble their once winning ways will meet under the lights for the first night game at Michigan Stadium.

As everyone knows, Michigan State is the Oregon of the Big Ten, changing its jersey and helmet styles too frequently to count. Just visit the Michigan State Football page for proof.

On the other side of Oregon is Notre Dame and Michigan, who seem to never change their style. Looking closely you can see slight tweaks made to the jerseys every few years, but their helmet style has remained the same for decades. That’s all going to change tomorrow night.

Michigan and Notre Dame will wear retro jerseys, and more importantly retro helmets, which will break their streak for wearing the same helmet style longer than any other football team. After the game, that title will be given to Tennessee who hasn’t changed their helmet since 1983.

I am not going to make a habit about writing about other programs, but it’s not everyday that corporate influences persuade traditional programs to break tradition to get back to tradition.

Helmet Streak according to our friends at Helmet Hut & Helmet Project:
Notre Dame: 1964 – 9/10/11
Michigan: 1976 – 9/10/11
Tennessee: 1983 – Present
Alabama: 1984 – Present
Penn State: 1987 – Present
Kansas State: 1989 – Present
Ball State: 1990 – Present
