Portland State had to earn their logo on game day

For some coaches, the logo on the side of the helmet is something that is earned, not just given.

What better way to get your guys to prove that they deserve it than to go into the first game of the season with a helmet free of a logo, and make them earn it with a combination of effort and performance?

That's exactly what Portland State head coach Nigel Burton and his staff decided to do with their opening week game against Eastern Oregon. The Vikings went out and won 57-17 that night and, since Portland State's next opponent is Cal, coach Burton's decision on whether the logo was earned or not will come via the Pac-12 Network later today.
