A new gold standard at Notre Dame

Notre Dame will upgrade its helmet for Saturday's showdown against rival USC.

For the second time this season, Notre Dame will make a change to their helmets for a big night game. When USC visits South Bend, Ind., for the first night game at Notre Dame Stadium since 1990, the Irish will be sporting a bit more shiny look.

After adding a shamrock to the side of the helmet in an epic loss to Michigan in Week 2, the Irish will try to look more like the famed golden dome on the Notre Dame campus with their helmets.

I am not sure if these helmets will be used for the rest of the season or if it is just for the USC game, but either way, the look is very nice. It seems like it is a permanent change, though.

It will be interesting to see how the helmet translates to television. Some of the small details might not be visible on television.

Here is a facebook gallery and a video the Notre Dame athletics department released.
