CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The University of Cincinnati football team will be wearing red chrome helmets in this year's Belk Bowl.

The Bearcats have worn a unique helmet in each of their past four bowl games. They play North Carolina Dec. 28 in the Belk Bowl at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C.

The new-look helmets are available for purchase by fans for a $1,000 special contribution to UCATS, the proceeds of which will be earmarked for enhancements which will benefit all 18 varsity sports, UC said.

The red chrome helmet has black C-paws and a claw mark stripe. UC worked with Hydro Graphics Inc., an Oregon based-water transfer printing facility which utilized its proprietary HydroChrome® system of finishing to create the design.

To buy a helmet,  contact Katie Pavel in UCATS at katie.pavel@uc.edu or by calling 513-556-9763.

Contributions can also be made online by clicking here and making a $1,000 contribution to the Bowl Helmet Fund category. Distribution of helmets will begin on Jan. 15.
