It’s hard to have a distinctive look when your colors are white, blue and gold. That’s a road pretty well traveled. 

Akron, wearers of white, blue and gold, had a pretty good look in 2013. Not great, but certainly nothing to be ashamed about.

Last month, head coach Terry Bowden unveiled a new gold Christmas-ornament helmet that looked like an exact replica of Baylor’s gold chrome helmets.

But on Saturday, Bowden tweeted out yet another look that I really like. It’s a white lid with a gold Z and a blue facemask. The colors work together in concert, and the Z stands out here unlike on any other Akron helmet.

There’s nothing unique about white, blue and gold, but that Z sure is one of a kind.
