Gophers football preparing for crowd noise in Iowa

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Minnesota Golden Gophers are pumping in music to simulate crowd noise to prepare for a full house at Kinnick Stadium on Saturday.

On Tuesday, the Minnesota Golden Gophers pumped out some sizable noise on the practice field, according to the Pioneer Press. They get their Big Ten slate started on Saturday against Iowa, and they want to avoid the issues that Syracuse faced at TCF Bank Stadium. Minnesota's crowd helped the Gophers as the Orange were called on five false starts over the course of the game.

A sold out crowd at Kinnick Stadium on Saturday will try and make things just as tough for Minnesota. Gophers offensive coordinator Matt Limegrover said of crowd noise:

"You've always got to be prepared," Gophers offensive coordinator Matt Limegrover said. "We've had it implemented. But being at home for three weeks, we hadn't really featured it much. We did some of it at the end of fall camp, just so it wouldn't be a shock to the system."

Things will definitely be loud for Minnesota, especially now that their Big Ten schedule has started and they'll be playing some rivals. Minnesota will continue to pump music and crowd noise into their practices to help them out on Saturday. Teams at all levels generally do this, though it's not quite easy to simulate the effect of that many screaming, rabid fans and the echo of being down inside of a stadium.
