Northwestern will wear white helmets vs. WIU


This season isn't all bad. Thanks to Chris Emma, we learned that Northwestern will be wearing its white helmets against Western Illinois. The helmets looked great for the Cal game last year, but that was the only appearance they made. We'd been told the players really liked these and that we could see them a couple of times this year. Hopefully, this won't be their only appearance. No word on whether this means the slick all-white uniforms are coming Saturday, as well.
