Mississippi State to wear gold helmets against Ole Miss on Thanksgiving

Tuesday November 26th, 2013


A rivalry game calls for special helmets in the state of Mississippi. Mississippi State will wear gold chrome helmets when the Bulldogs take on Ole Miss in the Egg Bowl on Thursday night.

The gold helmets make a little more sense when considering the uniforms the Bulldogs plan to wear against the Rebels. Back in August Mississippi State unveiled special adidas uniforms for the Egg Bowl, complete with metallic gold numbers and trim. The jerseys spell out "HAIL STATE" above the front numbers.
