Minnesota to wear helmets supporting Epilepsy Awareness
The team will wear an "Epilepsy Awareness" sticker on the back of their helmets for the game, which will be Minnesota's third annual Go-Pher Epilepsy Awareness game. November is national epilepsy awareness month.
Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2005, and in partnership with his wife, Rebecca, Kill has invested heavily in epilepsy awareness by starting the "Chasing Dreams Coach Kill Epilepsy Fund."
Kill was forced to miss two games during the 2013 season as a result of the condition, and during his tenure, the program has adopted the cause of promoting awareness and fundraising for epilepsy.
The Gophers are 7-2 this season heading into Saturday's game against the No. 8 Buckeyes.
