This year is the 125th anniversary of the West Virginia football program, and to commemorate the milestone, the Mountaineers released special helmets that they will wear in their opening game against Missouri.

Check out these digs:

The helmets are pretty slick, and they complement West Virginia’s bold color scheme quite well. The Mountaineers went 8-5 last season, and they will hope to build on that success in year No. 125 of the program.

Joe Boozell has been a college basketball writer for NCAA.com since 2015. His work has also appeared in Bleacher Report, FOXSports.com and NBA.com. Joe’s claim to fame since joining NCAA.com: he’s predicted the correct national championship game twice… and picked the wrong winner both times. Growing up, Joe squared off against both Anthony Davis and Frank Kaminsky in the Chicagoland basketball scene. You can imagine how that went.
