The helmets have been something of a good luck charm for the Rebels, as they wore them when they defeated Alabama in Tuscaloosa this year. Playing against a tough Oklahoma State team on New Year’s Day, the intense Rebels will need all the luck they can get, especially with star defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche suspended.

Oh, and then there’s also the fact that the helmets look great to begin with.
