Rutgers will be paying tribute to the US Armed forces this weekend by wearing these helmets.

“We try to do this — and we did it last year for the first time and now we’re fortunate to do it again — when we’re playing Army,” said Rutgers coach Kyle Flood. “And, really, this is just our way of honoring all of the men and women around the world that serve our country and protect our country the entire year.

“So we’re excited to do it, and hopefully the people around the world will get a chance to see the game. They’ll draw some pride from it the way we have.”
