North Carolina already showed its alternate navy uniforms while warming up for Saturday's rivalry game against NC State. But after heading back into the locker room prior to kickoff, the team changed from white helmets to a brand new chrome helmet.

In addition to the chrome look, the helmet also replaces the interlocking "NC" logo with an oversized Tar Heel on the side. The Tar Heels were one of several teams sporting an alternate look during the early slate Saturday, along with Arkansas and Boston College.
