College Football Honors Harvey Victims

The Texas A&M football team plans to wear special decals on their helmets to honor Hurricane Harvey victims.

They open the regular season Sunday night against UCLA in Rose Bowl stadium.  Kickoff is at 6:30pm CT.

The design features a map of Texas surrounded by a hurricane, with a heart over the southeastern part of the state where the Category 4 storm first made landfall. 

Matt Watson, A&M's assistant athletic director for equipment and apparel said in a statement, "The heart is almost centered over Bryan/College Station and positioned to cover the majority of the areas hardest hit by Hurricane Harvey. It is intended to show that Texas shares one heartbeat and those affected are in our hearts and that they are not alone."

According to the university, more than half of A&M's players were directly affected by Harvey.

Officials at Mississippi State also released a tweet with a special design for their team.  It features the state of Texas, overlaid with their bulldog mascot.  MSU hosts Charleston Southern in Starkville on Saturday afternoon.

Ohio State and Indiana will both wear decals when they square off this evening in Bloomington.  The simple black-and-white design includes the words "Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts" and "Houston Strong."
