This was prior to August 9, 2018 the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.

Nebraska Wesleyan has announced a new helmet design for 2018 (shown above).

Dubuque's 2000 season helmet design was similar to the 1998-1999 one shown above, but had a black outline around the letters and no central stripes.

An earlier helmet design (c.late 1970s/early 1980s) has been described as being similar to the 1997 helmet shown above, with the addition of a white "USC Trojan" logo.


LORAS

Since 2015 Loras has used the following sequences of helmet designs:

The "L" logos have apparently been used on the right sides of both the gold and purple helmets during most games from 2015 through 2017, but may have been absent during some games.

During Loras's 2016 home game vs Nebraska Wesleyan the team used a new logo (photograph below); I would appreciate any better photos of this design.

*1 Loras apparently used plain gold helmets throughout the period 1980 to 2014, before adding a purple "L" logo to the right side of the helmet beginning in 2015 (as represented below).

*2 This design is "blank" on its left side only; the right side has an "L" logo (as shown below).

*1 Nebraska Wesleyan switched to this design when the college changed the names of its athletic teams from "Plainsmen" to "Prairie Wolves"; this occurred about (I think) midway through the 2000 season. It was incorrectly reported to me earlier that the helmet design was changed at halftime of the team's homecoming game that year; while the new nickname and logo were introduced at halftime, the new helmet design was not used until the following week.

The current helmet design has apparently been in use since at least 2000.
