Date Night participants were able to get their picture taken with the iconic Floyd of Rosedale.
Coach Kill and his wife Rebecca hosted Date Night at TCF Bank Stadium on Thursday.
Upon arriving at the home facility for the Gophers, the participating couples were greeted by members of the football staff and were eventually led into the Minnesota locker room where their own personalized jerseys were hanging up in their stalls that were adorned with personalized nameplates.
Attendees could also get their picture taken with Floyd of Rosedale, the iconic trophy that is awarded annually to the winner of the Minnesota-Iowa game.
After putting their jerseys on, the couples received a pre-date pep talk from coach Kill and were then led onto the field by Rebecca Kill and Star-Tribune columnist Sid Hartman. They entered the playing surface through a cloud of smoke like the Gophers do for home games and then followed Goldy onto the field.
Once on the field, they lined up on the sideline for the National Anthem and then tried on the new Gopher helmets, shoulder pads and jerseys.
The evening ended with food and beverages on the plaza as the Gopher coaching staff mingled with the happy couples.
