NU hoping black-on-black helmets reverse bowl trend
It was supposed to be a secret, but running back Tyris Jones tweeted a picture of the black helmets Northwestern players will debut when they meet Mississippi State in the Gator Bowl on Tuesday.
The black helmets feature a black Northwestern "N" on the side.
The Wildcats hope the new look will help them snap their 64-game bowl losing streak. NU is looking for it's first bowl win since 1949.
