Wisconsin will sport a new red helmet for at least one game this season, the school announced in fall camp video released Thursday.

New coach Gary Andersen told the Badgers in a team meeting that the new red helmets with white letters would be worn in a game against Tennessee Tech and perhaps additional games.

"That's a little bit of a new tradition," Andersen said. "But there's a rich, rich tradition here that you understand, and you all know we all have great respect for that. So we're molding that to be respectful of traditions, and trying to be on the cutting edge is what we're trying to do."

The new domes are an inverse of the white helmets with red letters that the Wisconsin traditionally wears (and will still wear). Even with a simple reversal of colors, though, it's a pretty sweet look for the Badgers.

You can watch the helmet announcement on the video below (skip ahead to the 4:20 mark).
