FOR TEAMS 20-11 CLICK HERE: http://glitternight.com/2012/08/11/the-coolest-helmets-in-ncaa-division-2-college-football/

 10. UNIVERSITY OF SIOUX FALLS COUGARS

Location: Sioux Falls, SD

Conference: Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference

Comment: The storied USF football program has been the gridiron pride of the Dakotas for years, with even Division 1′s North Dakota Fighting Sioux having fallen to the Cougars.

 9. FAIRMONT STATE FALCONS

Location: Fairmont, WV

Conference: West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference

Comment: Fairmont State fans have long felt there is no “equal” to their team’s helmets. I know, that’s a pretty lame joke even for me.

 8. EASTERN NEW MEXICO UNIVERSITY GREYHOUNDS

Location: Portales, NM

Conference: Lone Star Conference

Comment: As a lifelong dog lover I can’t resist the name or the helmets of the Greyhounds. Their stadium is located in the infinitely cool-sounding Blackwater Draw, too.

 7. CENTRAL MISSOURI MULES

Location: Warrensburg, MO

Conference: MidAmerica Intercollegiate Athletics Association

Comment: Insert your own HEE HAW joke here. The Mules hail from the state famous for Jesse James, Doniphan’s Thousand and, of course, for President Harry Truman.

  6. CONCORD UNIVERSITY MOUNTAIN LIONS

Location: Athens, WV

Conference: West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference

 Comment: The Mountain Lions are from one of the many U.S. college towns named after the Cradle of Western Civilization: Athens, Greece.

 5. SOUTH DAKOTA M&T HARDROCKERS

Location: Rapid City, SD

Conference: Independent

Comment: Not content to have one of the most butt-kickingly cool and original team names in college sports, the Hardrockers have also adopted these new helmets with their mascot’s face on them.

 4. CSU-PUEBLO THUNDER WOLVES

Location: Pueblo, CO

Conference: Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference

Comment: Who wouldn’t want to strap on a helmet like that and take the field for a team with a devastating name like Thunder Wolves?

  3. MISSOURI WESTERN GRIFFONS

Location: Saint Joseph, MO

Conference: MidAmerica Intercollegiate Athletics Association

Comment: Griffons were the mythical creatures who had the head, wings and talons of an eagle and the body of a lion. The name can be spelled Griffons, Griffins or Gryphons.

 2. BLACK HILLS STATE YELLOW JACKETS

Location: Spearfish, SD

Conference: Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference

Comment: “Up and at ‘em … Atom Ant!” … Had to be said. BHSU’s mascot looks cool enough to merit its own Saturday morning cartoon series, doesn’t it?

 1. NEBRASKA-KEARNEY LOPERS

Location: Kearney, NE

Conference: MidAmerica Intercollegiate Athletics Association

Comment: What better helmet for the top spot than this one? The UNK helmet combines graphic coolness with pure Americana, perfect for a team from where “the deer and the antelope play.”
