FARGO - North Dakota State is not only taking the alternative gold jerseys out of the closet Saturday against Western Illinois, but the Bison are adding some spice to the wardrobe: green football helmets.

The program was to unveil the new look at head coach Chris Klieman's weekly press conference at noon Monday at the Fargodome. The helmet, with a green matte finish, will be part of the agricultural celebration of the annual Harvest Bowl.

NDSU Athletics offered an early preview of the helmets via Twitter on Monday morning.

NDSU has worn gold helmets since it started its long-standing football run of excellence in the 1960s. It will be the only game this season the team will wear the green helmets.
