STARS & STRIPES FOREVER: In Newark, Tom Luicci noted the Rutgers Univ. football team in its home game against Army Saturday will use "flag-themed headgear reserved for playing against military academies." The design is "similar to what was done for the first time last year against the Black Knights -- except it is now set against the new, silver metallic helmets Rutgers wears." The block "R" on the side is "filled in with stars and stripes." There also is a "strip down the middle of the helmet with the same look." The helmet "pops with a distinctive splash of red, white and blue." Rutgers DT Scott Vallone said, "I was trying to get stars and stripes for the numbers, too" (Newark STAR-LEDGER, 11/6).
