Tennessee, Florida sport decals supporting Hurricane Irma victims

Florida and Tennessee are wearing special helmet decals showing support for victims of Hurricane Irma.

A week after Hurricane Harvey devastated the state of Texas and the Gulf Coast, Florida and surrounding states were hit by Hurricane Irma, displacing many and claiming the lives of more than 68 people

College football was one of the many entities to show solidarity to victims of the hurricanes, with many programs across the nation showcasing helmet decals in support of victims of Harvey last weekend.
