We loved it when Denver donned their away helmets earlier this season. We figure we’ll be seeing a lot of them on their run to Memorial Day, so we got a closer look. The crimson and gold look regal with the DU logo on the side.

In case you were wondering why the University of Denver has a DU logo, it’s because the reverse initials “DU” are used as the university’s shorthand moniker (rather than the more intuitive “UD”) as part of a Rocky Mountain and midwestern tradition of initial reversal. It’s similar to the University of Colorado’s “CU”, the University of Tulsa’s “TU”, the University of Oklahoma’s “OU”, the University of Nebraska’s “NU”, the University of Missouri’s “MU”, and the University of Kansas’ “KU.”

Take a closer look at other teams’ Warrior TII’s.
