    After revealing new orange helmets on Tuesday night, Tennessee officially hit the field for the first time with those helmets on Saturday night in Columbia.

    Prior to the game starting against the Gamecocks, the Vols ran out onto the field for pregame warm-ups wearing the new helmet.

    It is the first time in the “modern” era of helmets that Tennessee will be wearing an orange lid.
