During recent years Angelo State has used the following sequences of helmet designs:


EASTERN NEW MEXICO

2006 -

During at least three games in 2017 (October 21 vs West Texas A&M, October 28 at UTPB, and November 4 vs Tarleton State) Midwestern State replaced the "MSU" logo on the right side of each helmet with a "spear" logo like the one worn on both sides of the helmet from 2002 through 2005, The "MSU" logo was worn on both sides of the helmet during all other games in 2017 with the possible exception of game #9 (November 11 at Eastern New Mexico); no photographs or video have been located from this game.

These are all of the helmet designs used by Midwestern State since the team was formed in 1988; an earlier team played its last season in 1956.

This university was named East Texas State University prior to September 1, 1996, hence the "ET" logos on the earlier helmets.

*1 This design has uniform numerals on its left side only; on the right side is a "lion head" logo like that worn on both sides of the previous design.

This school was named West Texas State University prior to June 1, 1993. The football team participated in the Division I Missouri Valley Conference through 1985 before moving to Division II and joining the Lone Star Conference the following year. WTSU did not field a team in 1991.
