This may be taking the uniform craze a bit too far.
The throwback baby blue helmets Ole Miss wore last season are going to get a big of a new life, in a different sport.
Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze urged Rebels fans to back Ricky Stenhouse Jr. at this weekend’s CheezIt 355 at Watkins Glen because his racing helmet will be baby blue with the script Ole Miss writing on it.

This is not the first time Stenhouse has shown support for Ole Miss. He wore an Ole Miss helmet at Talladega in October too. Stenhouse is an Ole Miss fan and is happy to show some support whether it be after a big win, to rub in a victory in the face of a rival or to get ready for the start of the football season.
