UCF releases new footage of black helmet
UCF has offered another peek of their new alternate black helmet.
A segment during this week's edition of "Inside UCF Football" was devoted to the Knights' new Nike jerseys as well as the new helmet option.
UCF's white helmet has been their primary headgear since the school released the current logo in 2007. The new glossy black helmet, which features a gold stripe down the middle, will be worn at some point during season.
"There's a lot of anticipation of when the helmet is coming out," Director of Equipment Robert Jones said in the video. "We get a lot of, 'When are we wearing it?' That's something that's not going to be told."
During a recent practice, the team recently wore the black helmets, though without the affixed UCF decal.
They could certainly break them out before then, but there's plenty of buzz that UCF may go with an all-black look - black jerseys, pants and helmet - for their Nov. 29 Black Friday game against rival South Florida.
