The Gopher’s 2015 football schedule was released on Monday, which included a few unfamiliar opponents for Minnesota fans.

Minnesota will open the 2015 football season on Sept. 3 at home against Texas Christian University and will also host Kent State and Ohio. The Gophers will travel to Fort Collins, Colo. for a match up against the Colorado State Rams of the Mountain West Conference on Sept. 12 for their only non-conference road game that season.
