You missed awesome helmets and 'Mean' Joe by watching South Carolina and Georgia
The Gamecocks and Bulldogs may have been playing in better games, but North Texas was sporting possibly the best helmets of the postseason vs. UNLV. Plus, one seriously famous alum was on site.
North Texas-UNLV wasn't the most intriguing game of the day, but you missed some cool stuff if your dial was set to the Heart of Dallas Bowl.

We’ve gotten used to seeing less-than-packed stadiums this bowl season, and the empty seats on display during North Texas’ 36-14 win over the UNLV showed the Heart of Dallas Bowl was no exception.
Sometimes you have to search far and wide for the silver lining.
Other times, it’s right on the surface.
The latter was the case on Wednesday afternoon in the 25th bowl game on the schedule. And if you were watching some of the juicier matchups on the first day of the new year, you might have missed the Mean Green sporting some of the coolest helmets of postseason.
Call us superficial, but looking good should count for something, and the green-on-black design was pretty awesome.
