The Rams will be wearing a white helmet with a white facemask and green bone horns, similarly to the pattern used on CSU’s Ag Day helmets, against Marshall in the New Mexico Bowl Saturday.


The football team first released the helmets through its official social media accounts before displaying them for the world in the team’s first official bowl practice in Albuquerque, N.M.

CSU originally wore white helmets with decals for the “State Pride” uniforms against Boise State on Nov. 11. The new helmets feature green painted horns, meaning they will likely become part of CSU’s regular uniform rotation.

In total, CSU has worn eight different uniform combinations in 2017 and will wear the ninth against Marshall.

2017 uniform combinations and results:


Oregon State – W, 58-27

San Jose State – W, 42-14


Nevada – W, 44-42



Air Force – L, 45-28


ACU – W, 38-10


Colorado – L, 17-3
