Minnesota unveils 'End Racism' uniforms for Friday night contest with Purdue
Minnesota will unveil its new uniform combination Friday evening, and it is one with a simple but powerful statement.
On Thursday, the Gophers released a video on social media unveiling the new and unique uniforms for the Week 5 game. It’s a great looking uniform with one, particularly noteworthy tweak.
This week’s uniform combination reveal features a custom nameplate with the message “End Racism” etched in place of a last name. There has not been any official word, but it would appear that this nameplate will be worn by every member of the Gophers.
Here is the video of the reveal featuring comments from a number Gophers:
There’s always more work to be done.
