The Bulldogs will tie their single-season record of 9 uniform combinations (set in 2012) by wearing the gray pants on the road in Fayetteville. In what will potentially be the Bulldogs' best look of the year, they will wear the matte maroon helmets, white jersey, and gray pants. When combined with Arkansas' Red-Red-White combo, the Bulldogs will participate in one if the nation's best uni matchups for the second weekend in a row.
Matte Maroon Helmet
In their 2:30 CBS home game vs #2 Alabama, the Bulldogs made a clutch decision and brought back the gray pants first seen vs Troy earlier this season. Because of the lack of oversized M-State logo, the gray pants create the best home look for the Bulldogs in 2015. I have to applaud the players and equipment staff for making us look as good as possible in what very well could be the biggest game of the year.
It turned out not to be much of a game, but it was recognized nationally as one of the best uniform match-ups of the weekend.
Shiny Maroon Helmet
Word leaked as far back as two weeks ago that for the first time in three years, Mississippi State would break out white helmets for its Thursday Night game at Missouri. Sure enough, the helmets were spotted on players' Snapchat stories after they were broke in during practice on Sunday night. After some mild controversy over what decal would appear on the matte white shell, it was revealed Thursday afternoon to be a chrome maroon transparent-banner M-State logo with a silver outline. Paired with the regular white jerseys and pants, the helmet creates the second all-white look worn by the Bulldogs since 2008, the last year of the Croom Era. Coincidentally, both times have been in the Bulldogs' first meetings with SEC newcomers Texas A&M and Missouri.
