Virginia Tech has introduced another new helmet for the 2015 season, The Orange Effect helmet. The metallic orange helmet will debut in the team's season opener against Ohio State. A special touch has been added to the helmets with a tribute sticker located on the back to honor the two WDBJ television journalist who were killed this year. The stickers feature the No. 7, which is WDBJ's channel, and teal and maroon ribbons, along with the initials of both victims.
