New helmets for Saturday's game
By Matt Fortuna
Notre Dame will wear another new helmet this Saturday when it takes on Maryland at FedEx Field in Landover, Md.
Equipment manager Ryan Grooms just posted on Twitter a picture of the new helmet, which can be found here.
At first glance, this helmet looks very similar to the one the Irish wore in their Sept. 10 game at Michigan, though the new one is shinier and features a green facemask.
This will be the fourth different helmet Notre Dame has worn this season. The Irish received shiny new gold helmets prior to the USC game. And, of course, they wore their old standard helmets in five of the season's first six games.
For a game billed as the Shamrock Series, these helmets are quite fitting.
