Minnesota is celebrating mascot Goldy’s birthday this Saturday, and has a fun new helmet for the occasion.
Coming off of a nice 48-14 win at Oregon State, Minnesota returns home for a game against Middle Tennessee.
Apparently, it is also Goldy’s birthday, which means the Golden Gophers are going to rock some wild helmets.
They feature a very big cartoon Goldy logo, and they are quite something.
