Purdue to put student photos on helmet vs. Iowa

Hey, Purdue fans, want to see your face on the Purdue helmet this year? You can make it happen. Really. Purdue announced Wednesday that students who buy a VIP card (PDF) by June 10 will have their face featured in a collage inside the “P” logo for the “Social Media Game” on Sept. 27 vs. Iowa.

This is a creative idea, one that can only increase student ticket sales and student interest. It’s a win-win. Only question is, will other teams copy the idea? Or, maybe, do the same with player numbers?

Students interested in having their face on the helmet must submit a photo of themselves wearing Purdue gear to sportspromo@purdue.edu by noon ET Friday, June 13.

After the game, according to Purdue, the team will email the students a digital copy of the final helmet sticker.
