The Wisconsin football team unveiled a new alternate helmet Thursday that it will wear in Week 2 vs. Tennessee Tech and, possibly, for other games this season. The Badgers revealed the helmet to the players in a YouTube video that is included at the bottom of this post.

The lid's design is very similar to Wisconsin's primary one. In fact, it is the same, only Wisconsin flipped the colors of the shell, facemask and stripe down the middle.

Seeing as how the Badgers plan to wear the alternate Sept. 7 at Camp Randall Stadium, I can't help but wonder if they will rock an all-red ensemble. Wisconsin has gone red-on-red before (here, here and here), but not with a red helmet.

Personally, I think the lid would look best as a road alternate, paired with red pants.
