At the University of Minnesota, football fans can find one of the oldest and most established programs in college football history. The Minnesota Golden Gophers football team has been a staple in NCAA Division I Football since their first season back in 1882. Today, the Division I team is part of the Big Ten Conference. Since the conference split in two, they are now part of the “Legends” division of the Big Ten; a title that pays homage to their legendary standing within the conference. The team has been a part of the Big Ten conference since the conference was established in the 1800s. Each year the team takes their home field in their yellow and red colors to play in front of thousands of screaming fans every season, who come in droves to see the action of this notoriously successful college football team live.
