Florida State will wear a white helmet for the first time in program history when it travels to Louisville next Friday (7:30 p.m. on ESPN).
The white helmet is rather simple, with a garnet spear on both sides and a white facemask. The front bumper displays the word “Noles” in gold with a garnet outline, while the back bumper features Florida State’s wordmark.
The white helmet will be paired with the Seminoles’ standard road jersey, which was introduced midway through the 2014 season, as well as plain white pants that include Florida State’s primary logo on the right hip, opposite of a garnet Nike Swoosh.
Interestingly, the Seminoles first put a white helmet on display in their locker room in 2010, as seen above. It never made its way to the field, though a newer version with a garnet facemask and updated spears has appeared in numerous recruiting photoshoots over the last year or so.
This marks the first new helmet for Florida State since 2015, when the Seminoles first wore helmet that faded from garnet to black with gold spears and a gold facemask in a 52-13 win over Chattanooga. That helmet then returned for a 24-3 loss to Virginia Tech in 2018.
