This is a big weekend for the Gopher mens hockey team. The Wisconsin Badgers roll into town with a three point lead over the Gophers in the WCHA standings. Two Mariucci Arena home games will be good for the Gophers who are still licking their wounds over a pounding last weekend by Mankato.
Gopher fans are encourage to wear GOLD this weekend to Mariucci Arena in an effort to “gold-out” and Badger fans who might be in attendance. The Gophers tied and beat the Badgers earlier in the season in Madison so look for the Badger team to be out for revenge.
There are still Gophers Hockey tickets available from local ticket brokers – going rate? $80 per ticket. There is no doubt that the Gopher Badger series is one of the hottest tickets on the Gopher schedule. Border rivalry at it’s best.
