Helmet Bowl added Muskies, Olfs, Flames, Rattlers, Hatters, and Fighting Saints to the list of Conference Champions for the first time.
Pitt won the ACC by TWO votes!
Texas Permian Basin Falcons won the Lone Star Conference by ONE VOTE!
And, we discovered late Monday we have a TIE! In the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference the Upper Iowa Peacocks TIED with the Minnesota State Moorhead Dragons – both GREAT helmets – but only one can qualify for the Helmet Bowl National Championship.
This, and the playoff for the Mid-South Conference (which had too many teams for our 16-team brackets) will be announced soon.
Later this week, seeding for the Helmet Bowl II National Championship bracket will be revealed and you will be able to fill out your predictive brackets at Helmet Bowl.
The 64 Conference Champions with the most total votes qualify for the National Championships.
The National Championship bracket launches Monday, November 26 at 3 pm CST.
At Helmet Tracker, we are thankful for family who support our business and the fun of Helmet Bowl.
We are also thankful for college football Equipment Managers and their efforts to supply Helmet Bowl with the best images of their team's helmet.
We also give thanks for you, the voters in Helmet Bowl. You increased voting in the Helmet Bowl Conference play by more than 5 times the number of votes as last year!
You DO NOT want to meet these teams in the National Championship bracket.
One team far outranked others in terms of total votes through the four rounds of the Conference play – the Maine Black Bears.
Other teams nearly within shouting distance:
Iowa State Cyclones
Dickinson Red Devils
Florida International Golden Panthers
We will see some tough regional matchups, some impossible choices, and some great contests in the National bracket.

Helmet Bowl II Conference Champions
We start with EVERY college football helmet. In Helmet Bowl II, we seeded the top four teams in every conference and let teams go after each other in head-to-head, single-elimination brackets.
These teams battled through three, sometimes four rounds and emerged victorious and undefeated!
