Photo: Minnesota to wear American flag-themed helmets vs. Penn State

The Minnesota Golden Gophers will wear Stars & Stripes decals on their matte maroon helmets against Penn State on Saturday.

The Gophers have to be feeling pretty good about themselves these days. Following consecutive wins over Northwestern, Nebraska and Indiana (two of which were on the road), the team is sitting pretty at 7-2 overall.

They can push their record to 8-2 with a win over the inconsistent Nittany Lions on Nov. 11, and will be looking very patriotic in attempting to do so.

Check out the Gophers’ planned lid for the big game, and sound off with your thoughts on the alternate look below!
