The Bulldogs debuted their new alternate helmets in Week 1, those being the maroon versions of the snow bowl helmets. Maroon jerseys and White pants complete a non-bad look.
Today, Mississippi State announced a new helmet for their game vs. Oklahoma State game in Houston on Saturday. The helmet is a Maroon Version of the snow bowl helmet worn last year. It is matte, and has a maroon facemask.
Scott Stricklin announced on twitter that the Bulldogs would be wearing Maroon on Saturday, despite being the away team. Could there be a Maroon/Orange matchup in Houston come Saturday? It's very possible. As for pants, gray would look best with this helmet and I think that's what they'll go with. But you never know, so here are 4 possible uniforms for State on Saturday-
A teaser video released yesterday turned out to be about the 2013 Egg Bowl Uniforms. The third uniform in the Egg Bowl series, this will be the second maroon version. This year's version drops the white outline around the numbers and moves the gold HAIL STATE wordmark from the back to the front of the jersey, replacing the big Mississippi State wordmark. The numbers are in the same spot as they were last year, and a m-state logo has been added to the right chest. A gold Mississippi State wordmark has been added to the pants.
There is still none of the striping from the regular uniforms on this year's egg bowl version. That, along with the lack of an outline on the numbers, is one of the reasons I initially felt like this is a downgrade from the first two egg bowl jerseys. Those didn't have any striping, either, but a helmet stripe and a shoulder stripe would certainly improve this uniform. However, these have since grown on me and I have to say that they are probably my favorite of the three.
