UCLA football: Bruins to honor U.S. Navy SEALs with 'bone frog' helmet decals

  UCLA will wear the "bonefrog" decal on its helmets Saturday night to honor the U.S. Navy Seals.

UCLA will wear a "bone frog" helmet decal in Saturday night's Military Appreciation Weekend home game against Washington State as a tribute to its longtime affiliation with the U.S. Navy Seals.

The logo is usually reserved for members of the Navy's elite sea, air and land teams. However, UCLA's football team has a special bond with the SEALs, having gone through SEAL workouts during preseason training for several seasons.

The Navy's special operations force has several of its teams headquartered in Coronado, near San Diego, and the Bruins are hoping the use of the SEALs' distinctive logo will raise the group's public profile.

In addition, bald eagles from the Los Angeles Zoo will take flight during pre-game ceremonies.

Here's the school's tweet showing the decal up close:
