Photo: Akron Zips football team to wear gold chrome helmets

Flashy uniforms have become a trend in college football over the past few years and unfortunatley, we don’t see it going anywhere any time soon.

According to a tweet sent out by former Akron offensive lineman Vinnie Rizzo, the Zips will wear a predominantly gold chrome helmet with dark blue face masks and a blue outlined "Z" on the side.

It’s unclear if these are the Zips’ new fulltime helmets or just alternates.
