UCF Unveils Irish-Themed Helmets for Season Opener in Ireland

Central Florida is doing its best to win over fans in Ireland for its season opener against Penn State.

The Knights and the Nittany Lions will square off in the 2014 Croke Park Classic in Dublin this weekend, and to get in the spirit of the game, UCF has made a slight tweak to its helmet. To commemorate the special game, two Irish clovers and a pot of gold have been added to the Knights' helmets.

Playing in Ireland is a unique situation for both teams, and this was a cool way for UCF to pay tribute to the country.
