The Fighting Illini football team is looking to fashion to help fuel a new era of success this coming season. 

School athletic officials are showing off the team's new helmet design just in time for the 2013 season.  The orange helmet features a new blue and white stripe down its center and a giant blue and white "I" on either side.  The Illini are hopeful the new design will help end its 14-game Big Ten losing streak.
