DENTON, Texas -The online auction for the centennial jerseys worn by North Texas during its season-opening victory over Idaho concludes Wednesday, Sept. 4.

The centennial helmet word in Saturday's 40-6 win are also on sale online for a set price of $300 each. There are 90 helmets and will be available until they run out or the end of year.
Unlike throwback uniforms that pro and college teams have worn from a particular season, the Mean Green centennial uniform is a composite of multiple eras of North Texas football, honoring some of the greatest players in the school's history.
The centennial helmet is white, as were the North Texas helmets from the 1950s until 1967, and is emblazoned with the North Texas logo from 1973 to 1982, the iconic image dubbed by students of that period as the Flying Worm.
The jersey is in the style and shade of green of those worn in the 1960s.
