The 1954 opener was a loss at Iowa as the Spartans came out in their usual kelly green helmets.
For the first two home games, against Wisconsin on October 2 and Purdue on October 23, Duffy Daugherty for unknown reasons put the team in white helmets with a kelly green one-inch center stripe. The helmets didn’t help Duffy Daugherty against either opponent.
Michigan State football hasn't played in a white helmet since the loss to Purdue on October 23, 1954.
Helmet Hut’s website indicates that Michigan State wore white helmets at Indiana on October 9. I couldn’t find any historical evidence to prove or dismiss this fact.
The jersey and pants worn for the 1954 games against Wisconsin and Purdue were the 1947 - 1955 home style.
