Rumor Busting: Huskers are not wearing black helmets to Wisconsin
The internets are ablaze with rumors that the Huskers will wear special uniforms to Wisconsin to coincide with NU's call for a Black Out. Then the Twitter account used by Nebraska equipment managers posted the photo above that clearly shows a black Nebraska helmet in the background.
The equipment managers quickly Tweeted a clarification stating that Nebraska will not be wearing black helmets.
We are not wearing black helmets. We were cleaning the eq room. We are NOT wearing black helmets. I promise.
The helmets were apparently created by some students a few years ago "for fun." Rest easy Husker traditionalists. Nebraska isn't the new Maryland.
