The Gophers wore white helmets of the first time since the 2006 season. Look for them to wear the white helmets again this week when they travel to West Lafayette and take on Purdue. The idea to wear white helmets was coach Tim Brewster's idea to try and spark the team to victory.

The Gophers are now 0-10 against ranked opponents under Brewster.
