Colorado unveils original logo helmets for USC

It’s a blast from the past for the Buffaloes on Friday night

University of Colorado

The Colorado Buffaloes have a new look for the blackout on Friday night vs. USC (7 p.m. MT/ ESPN2). They will be wearing an old school logo that predated Ralphie in the 1940’s on the black helmets.

According the University of Colorado, the Buffaloes logo “was quite detailed, and virtually disappeared from most publications by the early 1950s. However, the logo was a popular automobile decal sold by the campus bookstore up until the introduction of a standard campus-wide logo adopted in 1981 (the look we commonly know as CU’s primary mark today)”

Colorado looks for their first ever win over USC after suffering 13 straight series losses going back to 1924. Winning the turnover battle will be a key for the Buffaloes to try and pick up a win over an injured Trojans team. Buffs safety Mikial Onu is one of the best in the nation in forcing turnovers with four interceptions and two forced fumbles.
