The Golden Gophers are getting more and more excited and are excited to build on their momentum from last season and their excellent team defense:
Last season, the Golden Gophers finished No. 6 in the nation in defense with 17.3 points allowed per game. They really showed it with an 18-6 win over West Virginia in the Guaranteed Rate Bowl to close the season.
The team brings in two four-star rookies to add to this squad in Trey Bixby (DE) and Ike White (WR) giving them more depth on both sides of the ball.
The defense will take a hit losing Boye Mate (EDGE) who was drafted by the Seahawks in the second round of the NFL Draft with Esezi Otomewo (DE) on the draft board at the time of this writing.
Coach Fleck has led the team to three bowl wins in its past five seasons, only missing out in 2020 in the shortened pandemic season when the team finished 3-4 in all seven games it contested after starting the season ranked 19th with a lot of hope and promise, much like this season.
This game will feature Maroon vs. Gold with the game moving indoors recently due to fan weather and various events scheduled for the day.
Regional restrictions may apply.
