Troy To Wear 1984 Throwback Helmets Against Southern Miss

Troy will commemorate its 1984 Division II national championship by wearing throwbacks helmets against Southern Miss on Sept. 14.

The anodized red helmet features a chrome facemask and reflective helmet decal. And though it’s clearly the same logo used and since copyrighted by Michigan State, the Trojans also used that logo from 1984-91.

The only differences between this iteration and the helmet Troy wore during its national championship season are the facemask and stripe down the center. The Trojans wore a white facemask and a white-black-white stripe in 1984.

Troy — known at the time as Troy State — finished the 1984 season at 12-1 overall, knocking off North Dakota State in the national championship game. The 18-17 win gave the Trojans their first Division II title.
