Gabe Ikard’s career at Oklahoma may be over, but college rivalries never end.
The Sooners center unveiled on Twitter the helmet he plans to wear for Saturday’s East-West Shrine Game.

If you’re not familiar with the Red River Rivalry, it’s one of the most intense and best in college football.
Oklahoma fans are always doing the "Horns down" hand sign and turning the Longhorn logo upside down.
But for the Shine Game, Longhorns and Sooners will be playing for the same team. There are two Texas players on the West roster who probably won’t appreciate Ikard’s helmet.
They can always remind him of the scoreboard though. Texas upset Oklahoma last season, 36-20.
