The Heroes Day game will incorporate an American flag logo on the special edition helmets for the Wildcats.
Heroes Day is a game to celebrate first responders including EMTs, Fire, Police and Military.

Special edition helmets seem to be the norm for Northwestern football, at least for this season. Who’s to know if they have other theme-inspired helmets for the remainder of this fresh season.
We will keep our eyes glued for another helmet combination.
Don’t miss out on seeing the American flag special edition helmet as the Wildcats take on Duke at 12:00 p.m. ET at Ryan Field.
