To celebrate Goldy Gopher's birthday next week, the Gophers will be wearing gold-on-gold uniforms for Saturday's game against Middle Tennessee State. 

Their helmets will be gold, too, featuring the Gopher logo on one side, the "M" on the other side, and some Gopher tail-like stripes down the middle.
