It’s no secret that P.J. Fleck and the Gopher football team had an incredible 2019 season. The season they capped off with a win in the Outback Bowl over Auburn. Gopher players and coaches finally got rewarded on Tuesday with their Outback Bowl rings. As you can see below, they are a thing of beauty.

The ring features three different trophies on it: The Big 10 west Championship trophy, The Outback Bowl trophy, and The Governor’s Victory Bell trophy, which is the rivalry trophy between the Gophers and Penn State.

It also has the name of each recipient and some of the season’s sayings/mantras. You can see it all in more detail, with the graphic above. It’s absolutely beautiful… but it could be better. Just wait until 2021, when the Gophers get three rings like LSU did this year.

You heard it here first folks. The Gopher Football team will be your 2020 National Champions!
