Coach Brian Kelly tweeted a picture of the decal adorning one of his team's helmets:
We will honor all of the victims of the Boston Marathon tragedy tomorrow with a new helmet decal. twitter.com/CoachBrianKell…This is nice gesture by the Irish, and follows yesterday's news that UMass will allow Boston Marathon runners to run a lap during its spring game. The Minutemen will also wear special helmet decals.
