Middle Tennessee 's football team got some great news at the beginning of the week when the NCAA reversed their eligibility ruling for former Marine Steven Rhodes, allowing him to suit up for the Blue Raiders in 2013.

On Thursday, UniWatch posted a photo of a new white helmet for Middle Tennessee in 2013. The Blue Raiders' standard helmet for 2012 was silver, as shown in the photo below.

The Blue Raiders kick off their first season as a Conference USA member on Thursday, Aug. 29 against Western Carolina. New conference, new look -- or at least new option.

For comparison, check the silver lids from 2012.
