I don’t know if you’re aware, but there is a big game coming up.

The No. 13-ranked Minnesota Golden Gophers (8-0) host the No. 5-ranked Penn State Nittany Lions (8-0) on Saturday, Nov. 9, at TCF Bank Stadium. Kickoff is set for 11 a.m.

If you’re planning to attend the game — and if you’re in the Twin Cities area or can arrange transportation for yourself to the Twin Cities area, you should definitely get your butt in a seat — the University is asking that Gopher fans wear maroon apparel to match the players, who will be pairing their maroon uniforms with their chrome helmets.

Every fan in attendance will receive a free gold rally towel to complete the look.

So start planning your wardrobe accordingly!
