PHOTO: Southern Miss to wear stars-and-stripes helmet decals

By Jerry Hinnen | College Football Writer

Rutgers tweaked its helmets to incorporate the stars-and-stripes into their decals for its game against Army Saturday, and came away with a 28-7 win. So if a similar tweak does anything similar for Southern Miss against UTEP this weekend, there will some very happy fans in Hattiesburg.

The Golden Eagles are suffering through their worst season in decades at a miserable 0-10. But Saturday's home date with the Miners will be Military Appreciation Day, and the Eagles will still celebrate it with these special decals (from the Southern Miss equipment department's Twitter feed):

USM's Eagles are Golden rather than bald, but there's still some nice synergy here, no?
