EAST LANSING, Mich. -- The Michigan State football program revealed its new white helmet on Wednesday morning. The design features the green Spartan helmet logo on both sides, filled in with the Spartan green pattern that was designed by Nike. The same Spartan green pattern fills in the stripe in the middle of the helmet.
Michigan State will wear the new helmet for the first time as part of an all-white uniform combo against Western Michigan on Sept. 9 in Spartan Stadium. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. and the game will be televised on BTN.
MSU has only worn white helmets at home in two previous games, both arriving in the 1954 season (Oct. 2 vs. Wisconsin; Oct. 23 vs. Purdue).
