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.

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.
