PHOTO: Rice to wear U.S.A.-themed helmets for Armed Forces Bowl

On Dec. 29, Rice will play Air Force in the Armed Forces Bowl sponsored by military partner Bell Helicopter. So what better time for a little stars-and-stripes-themed imagery on an alternative helmet? From the official Rice football Twitter feed:

It's not the first America-styled alternative helmet in college football, or even the first this season. But who needs originality when you've got something as cool as a red-white-and-blue English "R" or the flag imagery repeated in miniature in the "Rice" across the front? Two thumbs up.
