*Changes are coming to Helmet Bowl II. Look for an update Sept 12, 2018.
Welcome to Helmet Bowl II – the Greatest College Football Helmet Contest Ever.
A year ago we gathered 777 college football helmets and put them into the first Helmet Bowl. Tens of thousands of votes determined Conference Championships. In the 64-team National Championship Bracket, hundreds of thousands of votes lead to a showdown between DI San Diego State and DIII Gallaudet University. A stunning come-from-behind national effort saw the Bison win the inaugural Helmet Bowl trophy.
This year will be even better! Equipment Managers, Sports Information Directors, football players and coaches, students, alumni, and fans are poised to push their team forward to a Conference Championship into the National Championship bracket, then to the Helmet Bowl II Championship.
We updated the rules for Helmet Bowl II. Significant changes include:
- a compact, more powerful Conference play period
- Conference Championship brackets for every Conference
This means you have to be on your game right from the get-go. Fans will have just two weeks to ensure their team qualifies for the Conference Championship Brackets.
See the complete rules here.
We consulted with Equipment Managers who had success in Helmet Bowl I, held polls, and talked with many of you at the Athletic Equipment Managers Association convention in Phoenix. From your input and a careful look at engagement and enthusiasm from the inaugural Helmet Bowl, changes were determined.
October 1 – Conference play begins and runs two straight weeks.
October 15 – Conference play concludes.
October 29 – Conference Championship Brackets launched
November 19 – Conference Champions Crowned
November 26 – National Championship Bracket of 64 launched
January 7 – Helmet Bowl II Champion Crowne
Watch our social media for announcements of how to participate! Equipment Managers and Sports Information Directors will receive instructions via email in early September.
