PHOTO: La Tech to wear alternate helmet vs. UTEP

By Jerry Hinnen | College Football Writer

Louisiana Tech announced Tuesday that for the first time, the Bulldogs will wear a helmet adorned with an actual, you know, bulldog.

As part of its annual "RED OUT" -- to be held this season Oct. 4 against UTEP, and yes, they prefer it all-caps -- Tech will wear helmets featuring its secondary Bulldog logo rather than its traditional "State-and-T" logo, as pictured on the team's official Twitter feed:

This will be the Bulldog logo's debut on a Tech helmet. Maybe it's not quite as cool as the patriotic alternates broken out for last year's Army game ...

... but that helmet's also getting an airing this season (Sept. 11 at North Texas, on the CBS Sports Network), and you can't keep the RED OUT fun confined to the stands, can you?
