The Rice Owls will be facing off with Mississippi State in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl, and they have some fresh new helmets for the game. 

Since Rice's mascot is the Owl, they seemingly copied the Oregon Ducks with the design of the wings across the helmet.

Here is the Oregon helmet for comparison.

Don't they look the same?

 

Thanks to Jeff Weintraub of Diehard Sport for the find.
