UTEP Bringing Back Paydirt Pete Retro Helmets For Homecoming Game [VIDEO]
Despite suffering a 58-3 loss to Louisiana Tech Saturday night, UTEP fans will get some good news Saturday night when the team returns to the Sun Bowl for its annual Homecoming game to host Old Dominion. The Miners will be turning back the clock and wearing the old Paydirt Pete logo on their helmets.
The helmets were worn between 1986 and 1989, and UTEP chose to bring them back in honor of the school's Centennial Celebration. Miners head coach Sean Kugler is happy to bring back the "old school" helmets.
