The Florida Gators re-open their rivalry with the in-state Miami Hurricanes this weekend and there are some “BlackOut” helmets that have surfaced as a potential look for the team in Week 2. Florida has never been shy to tweak with their look and add some alternate Nike Pro Combat uniforms, so many believe that this could be the look the team rolls out when they face the Hurricanes for the first time in five years.

Here is an image of the black helmet, which was leaked by @GatorNationU Wednesday night on Twitter:

Personally, these are incredible.

I’m not too thrilled about the two-tone facemask, but the rest of the look is excellent and gives a modern look without going too far.

What are your thoughts of the new-look helmet? Is this something that you’d like to see that Gators rock on the field? It would certainly be a unique look.
