Nevada launched two new helmets for the 2021 season ahead of its spring game on Saturday at Mackay Stadium.
The team’s main helmet has undergone a color change, although the design remains the same. The Wolf Pack will wear a silver helmet with the “Script Pack” on one side and the player’s number on the other. After using a more traditional silver last season, the Nevada helmet in 2021 will have metallic glitter silver inspired by the Notre Dame helmet.
“You might know Notre Dame has a golden helmet,” Nevada coach Jay Norvell told his team ahead of the spring game. “It’s a special gold. It’s a metallic glitter gold. It’s the only helmet like it in college football. No one else wears it. No one else has worn this colored helmet. , and we patented that money. No one in college football is going to wear it. helmet but Nevada.
“We are building a team with unique qualities. You are unique. This helmet is unique. No one else will wear this helmet but us, but the wolf pack.
The “Script Pack” is written in navy blue with a white outline. The player’s number is also in blue with a white outline. The face mask is silver with a navy blue stripe in the middle of the helmet.
Additionally, the Wolf Pack will have an alternate white helmet. The primary helmet of the Wolf Pack for much of the Brian Polian era (2013-16) was white, which was a popular color scheme in the early 2010s. Since Norvell took over, the Wolf Pack mostly stuck with silver and blue helmets with the occasional specialist helmet.
The decals on both sides of the helmet will remain the same as those on the main helmet, including the “Script Pack” on one side of the helmet and the player number on the other. These decals will be in blue with a white outline. The helmet will also have a blue stripe in the middle.
The team’s official sporting wolf logo, which hasn’t appeared on a Wolf Pack helmet since Norvell’s first season in 2017, is notably absent from the design. Nevada has de-emphasized the use of the official school logo over the past season instead of the “Pack.”
The Wolf Pack concluded their 15-practice spring camp on Saturday with the silver-and-blue game, which the blue team won, 35-28, after spotting the silver team with a 21-0 lead. Nevada opens its 2021 season on September 4 in Cal. His home opener is Sept. 11 against the State of Idaho.
