No, those are not eyebrows on Kent State’s football helmets. They are eyes — as in eye of the eagle — on special helmets for the Bowl on Sunday (Arkansas State won the game, 17-13). Here’s a closer look, plus a view of the back of the helmet, which is also quite unique.

Of course this isn’t the first go-round for this kind of design, as the baseball cap seen below (Lake Elsinore Storm, Single-A California League) demonstrates.
