The Bearcats have worn a unique helmet in each of their past four bowl games.

The Bearcats will take the field in Charlotte wearing a red chrome helmet with black C-paws and a claw mark stripe. UC worked with Hydro Graphics Inc., an Oregon based water transfer printing facility which utilized its proprietary HydroChrome® system of finishing to create the unique design.

The new-look helmets are available for purchase by fans for a $1,000

special contribution to UCATS, the proceeds of which will be earmarked

for enhancements which will benefit all 18 varsity sports.

Cincinnati (9-3, 6-2 American) will close out the 2013 season against North Carolina (6-6, 4-4 ACC) in the Belk Bowl on Dec. 28 at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C. The game will kick off at 3:20 p.m. ET, be televised by ESPN and broadcast on radio by 700 WLW AM.
