Northern Illinois will be special "Dark Dog" uniforms for their season finale tonight against Western Michigan (7 p.m. ET, ESPN2).
They didn't ask, but if it was up to me this would be Northern Illinois' regular look from here on out. Really sharp.
On the other side of the coin, Mississippi State unveiled a new chrome helmet the Bulldogs will wear Thursday night against Ole Miss. This will be the thirddifferent helmet the Bulldogs have worn this year.
On the plus side, though, if Mississippi State chooses to sell miniature versions of this helmet it would make a nice Christmas tree ornament or a great additional rear-view mirror for your car.
