The Fighting Illini have confirmed with CBS Sports that these new, orange block “I” helmets will be added to the team’s fashion repertoire in 2013.

After finishing out the 2012 season with a bottom-feeding 2-10 mark, the new look may help energize the program somewhat. Scroll below to see examples of the two different helmet designs the team went with last year. The new design combines the two: an orange helmet with a script “Illini” along the side and the other a matte blue with the same block “I” as the new look.
