LSU is rolling out splash shields

It's becoming clearer and clearer that if we're going to have college football this fall, we're going to have to get a little creative.

And it looks like some teams are doing just that.

A few college football teams will be masking up this season, and they took to Twitter on Friday to show off their new protective face coverings and face shields.

LSU and Texas rolled out transparent face coverings – which the Tigers' equipment team calls "splash shields" – which goes behind the facemask much like a traditional transparent visor, except it covers the lower portion of the facemask, as well.

North Dakota State – along with Oklahoma and seven more Missouri Valley Conference teams – are taking a different approach to face coverings, instead using a fabric face mask attached that attach to the helmet.

“If we want to play a football, this is what we have to do,” North Dakota State head coach Matt Entz told WDAY. “Our players are wearing masks in the weight room, everywhere they go. This is what we need to do.”

Hey, if it leads to football this fall, we're all for it.
