All season long, Cincinnati has been honoring its former offensive lineman, Ben Flick, who tragically passed away in a car crash this past September. Bearcats players wore his number, 77, on their helmets and jerseys to pay tribute to their fallen teammate. It looks as if that will continue into the postseason as well.
The school tweeted out a photo of Cincinnati’s new “red chrome” Belk Bowl helmets, which now have #77 on the base. Pretty cool.
