In preparation for the upcoming season, the Nevada football program unveiled a new helmet over the weekend.
The glossy silver helmet is essentially the inverse of the Wolf Pack’s navy blue lid, as it prominently displays a navy blue “Pack” script on the left side and the player’s number on the other. The only discernible difference between the two designs is the navy blue stripe down the middle.
Nevada has worn silver helmets intermittently throughout its history, most recently during the 2000–01 seasons. This version will presumably replace the Wolf Pack’s charcoal helmet, which was introduced into the rotation last season alongside a matte black “Battle Born” helmet.
It’s unclear if the silver helmet will become Nevada’s primary design or if the navy blue helmet will remain as the program’s go-to look. We don’t have to wait too long to find out, though, as the Wolf Pack open the 2020 season against Wyoming on Oct. 24.
