John Talty from the Clarion-Ledger confirmed the news:
Not that there'd ever be reason to doubt my guy @maroonwyatt, but I confirmed MSU will be wearing the gold helmets Thursday.— John Talty (@JTalty) November 26, 2013

@JTalty everyone said they love em!!— Elijah Staley (@ES14_) November 26, 2013
