The Minnesota Gopher football team opens its season tonight against the #2 TCU Horned Frogs at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. The St. Cloud State Huskies also kickoff the new season tonight against Concordia-St. Paul at Husky Stadium. I'll miss the SCSU opener, because I'll be at the Gopher game.

The last time the Gophers played the #2 team in the country was November 6, 1999 as the Gophers won 24-23 at #2 Penn State scoring on a 32-yard field goal as time expired. Tonight's kick-off is set for 8 PM CDT, and can be heard on 1390 The Fan, and seen on ESPN. The Gophers are 14-point underdogs.

The SCSU game kicks off at 6 PM here in St. Cloud, and tickets are available at or by calling 1-877-SCSUTIX.  Tickets will also be available at the gate tonight. SCSU fans are encouraged to show their support for the Huskies by wearing white to the game.  You can watch the game on Charter channel 823/426 in the St. Cloud area on the St. Cloud State Sports Network.

St. John's opens their football season this Saturday at home against the University of Dubuque at 1 PM at Clemens Stadium.

Go Gophers & Huskies!
