Maryland unveils ‘black ops’ helmets for Saturday’s game vs. Michigan

Tuesday September 29th, 2015

The Maryland Terrapins will wear hand-painted “Black Ops” helmets to go with their all-black alternate jerseys Saturday when they take on Michigan, the team announced.

Maryland debuted the black alternate jerseys in 2012, but has only worn them a few times since.

The Big Ten opener kicks off at 8 p.m. and will be a “blackout” at Byrd Stadium, the Terrapins’ home field.

Maryland’s assistant director of social media and branding tweeted out a picture of the helmets on Monday.

In addition, the team released a video on Twitter.
