Photo: Illinois Fighting Illini unveil helmets to honor military

On Friday, the Illinois Fighting Illini tweeted out an image of the commemorative helmets the team will be wearing on Saturday against Ohio State.

The helmets were designed to honor military members for the “Honor Our Military” game. The 10 stars represent 10 former team members who lost their lives during combat.

The helmets are orange with what appears to be a blue stripe running across the middle. White stars reside inside the blue state of Illinois.
