The Greatest College Football Helmet Contest Ever
Every Division. Every Conference. Every Team. Every Helmet.
Each college football team competes in their football Conference bracket to determine Conference Champions. Voting in the National Championship bracket then determines the Helmet Bowl II Champion.
Voting is open to anyone with access to HelmetBowl.com. Access is free and does not require sign-in. Voters can cast a vote in every active contest daily beginning October 22, 2018.
Conference Play and Conference Championships
Teams are placed in their own football Conference bracket to begin Helmet Bowl II Conference play. The top four teams in each Conference from Helmet Bowl I conference play are seeded in their Helmet Bowl II Conference bracket. The remaining teams are randomly placed.
Each head-to-head, single-elimination round lasts one week, beginning and ending on Mondays at 3 p.m. Central time. Conferences with 16-team brackets launch Monday, October 22, 2018. Conferences with 8-team brackets launch Monday, October 29, 2018.
Conference Champions will be crowned Monday, November 19, 2018.
Helmet Bowl II National Championship
The top 64 Helmet Bowl II Conference Champions, determined by vote totals in Conference play, advance to the National Championship bracket. Seeding (1 through 16) is based first on four geographic regions, and then vote totals in Conference play.
The 64-team bracket, launched Monday, November 26, 2018, pits teams against each other in one-week, single-elimination polling contests ending with a championship contest between the two remaining teams in early January 2019.
The Helmet Bowl II Champion will be crowned Monday, January 7, 2018.
Equipment Managers and Sports Information Directors
A team’s Equipment Manager or Sports Information Director have the option to send a new/updated helmet images throughout the contest. We encourage new helmet images match the helmets their team will wear on the football field that week.
Helmet Tracker reserves the right to adjust or change the rules at any time. Any rule adjustments and changes will be announced through normal social media and/or updates to this page.
No auto-vote mechanisms are allowed.
