N.C. State announced on Twitter on Thursday that it will wear a new alternate helmet in its game against Boston College on Saturday.

The helmet is all white and features a logo inspired by the school's Wolfpack nickname and its mascot Tuffy.

According to Sportslogos.net, N.C. State has used the image, which is a throwback to the school's old primary wolf-based logo, as an alternate logo since 2006.

N.C. State wore an alternate all-black uniform in its Sept. 6 game against Old Dominion.
