The Minnesota Golden Gophers finally have a home of their own.

No Twins. No Vikings. No tractor pulls. It's all theirs, and on campus.

The Gophers open shiny new TCF Bank Stadium against Air Force on Saturday, marking the first game played on the school's campus since 1981.

The $300 million stadium has received rave reviews for its aesthetics, including the largest locker room in professional or collegiate sports.

Coach Tim Brewster says the Gophers (1-0) can't get too emotional over the historic day. They have to focus on an Air Force team that racked up 474 yards on the ground last week in a shutout win against Nicholls State.
