What’s better than one Big Red?

When Western Kentucky hosts Liberty next Tuesday, the Hilltoppers will have a new look. In fact, they’ll have a bunch of new looks.
That’s because WKU has created seven different position-specific helmet logos for this game, each featuring a different version of the school’s popular Big Red mascot character (yes, that’s legal). Here are the seven designs, broken down by position:
Offensive and Defensive Linemen
Fun stuff! The quarterback design previously appeared during last season’s game against Rice; the rest are new.
Also, I note with a raised eyebrow that Big Red throws lefty and kicks righty, at least on this side of the helmet. (The logos are reversed on the other side.)
These helmets will also have a Big Red-themed nose bumper design, which will probably look very strange to anyone lined up directly across from a WKU player:
The WKU/Liberty game is scheduled for 7:30pm Eastern on Oct. 24.
(My thanks to Phil for bringing this one to my attention.)
