Gophers To Host 1st Modern-Day Outdoor Hockey Game
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The University of Minnesota is getting ready to host its first outdoor hockey game in modern history.
The top-ranked Gopher men’s team will host the 2014 Hockey City Classic on Friday at TCF Bank Stadium.
Minnesota is 12-1-0 all-time against its new Big Ten Conference rival, including a streak of five-straight wins against the Buckeyes.
The Gophers are unbeaten in their last eight games, going 6-0-2.
Some 4,500 to 5,000 fans are expected for the game. The forecast calls for a chance of snow in the evening, with daytime highs expected to reach only 11 above.
