*Before their game tonight (Nov. 20) against Purdue, the University of Minnesota will unveil a new uniform combination with one noteworthy tweak.

In place of each player’s last name on the back of their jersey will be the message “End Racism.” The move was revealed Thursday through a video shared on the Gophers’ social media.

“I think that a lot of people want to return to normalcy, but a lot of people need to realize that normalcy wasn’t really a good thing,” said a player at the video’s outset.

Watch below:

Kickoff against the Boilermakers is set for 7:30 pm EST tonight on BTN.
