NCAA Division I, Football Bowl Subdivision: The Big 12, with 2008 average attendances, and modern helmet history of each team.


As with the SEC map I posted a couple of weeks ago,  the modern helmet history of each team is shown in the teams’ sections on the far right.  The images of each team’s helmet start at the post-World War II period,  circa 1947 to 1950 or so.  This is when the old leather helmets were eventually replaced everywhere by the modern plastic compound helmets.  I am not positive,  but I think I have every helmet change of the teams in the Big 12,  from that post-War period to the present [to 2009].  At the bottom right of each team’s section is that team’s current helmet design  [note: Baylor has 2 helmets here because the team has home and road helmets this season.]. 

Thanks to MG’s Helmets {click here}.  This is where I get the illustrations of the current helmet designs.
