UMass is in dire need of something to turn around their season. Maybe a return to the glory days of Minutemen football with throwback helmets will do the trick.
UMass nearly shocked Tennessee on the road in Week 4 but is still the lone 0-5 team in the nation. They'll aim for a Week 5 victory at home against Ohio while honoring one of the best teams in program history, the 1972 group that won the Boardwalk Bowl. The 35-14 win over UC Davis at the Atlantic City (N.J.) Convention Center remains the only bowl win in program history.
Head coach Mark Whipple tweeted a photo of awesome 1972 throwback helmets for this week's game:
