UAB Football drops beautiful tribute helmets for anniversary of 9/11

Tuesday, the UAB Football team unveiled its latest rendition of uniform wear for Saturday's upcoming battle against the No. 2 Georgia Bulldogs in Athens.

The Blazers are one of several teams planning 9/11 anniversary tributes for Saturday's games, including the service academies of Navy and Air Force.

UAB will don a gorgeous all-white helmet featuring the team logo in the pattern of the American flag for the game against the Dawgs.

Whether or not the Blazers can pull off the big-time upset as +24.5 pt underdogs, they certainly will look sharp on the field.

UAB has a tall task in traveling to the Classic City to face Georgia, but the Blazers picked a perfect weekend to don their tribute helmets, with the spotlight being shown on ESPN2.

We can expect to see plenty of red, white and blue across the canvases of university fields and stadiums this weekend, similar to what Texas A&M did here last Saturday and on UAB's helmets.
