Slowly, we've seen pieces (or prototypes) of what Iowa's uniforms will look like on November 10th when they host Purdue. Initially, these were deemed "Pro Combat" uniforms but it's not Nike that designed these but the Iowa Athletic Department. Here is the post about the uniform pants and jersey that was seen in a Scheels in early September.
Today, the University of Iowa Surplus store on eBay released these helmets available for purchase as a resale:
Iowa will honor veterans on the jersey back - in place of the player name - will be a plate honoring a U.S. branch of service. The rumor is the helmet above will include a Red, White and Blue Tigerhawk, similar to the decal used last season versus Michigan. It could still be the gold Tigerhawk we are accustomed to or perhaps a black Tigerhawk. Red, White and Blue makes sense to me.
Here's the details included in the UofI Surplus eBay listing:

The Helmet in the Photos does not Feature the

And of course, here is the link to the eBay listing if you care to pre-order a helmet of your own. Also, a link to Marc Morehouse's story of the Veteran's Day uniform.
