MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — It’s week four of the college football season, and the South Alabama Jaguars will wear a fourth new helmet in their homecoming matchup with Central Michigan on Saturday, the team announced on Twitter Wednesday.
The Jags are coming into their homecoming game at 2-1 after knocking off then-undefeated Oklahoma State in Stillwater last Saturday, which earned them Cheez-It National Team of the Week honors.
South squared off with Central Michigan a year ago in Mount Pleasant Michigan, and the Jags left with a 14-point victory.
Week four will feature yet another unique uniform combination for the Jags with their helmets getting a retro look.
South will wear their traditional home red uniforms with white pants, but it’s the helmet that is unique. The helmet will feature a throwback Jaguar logo on the right side and the left side will feature a retro SA logo. The front shows the Moulton Bell Tower as well as 1963, which is the year the university was founded.
The Jags enter the contest as 16.5-point favorites over the Chippewas. The game will kickoff at 4 p.m. at Hancock Whitney Stadium.
