Gopher Hockey wins one, loses one against Bemidiji State last weekend

The Minnesota Men's Hockey team took on rivals Bemidiji State last weekend and walked away with a win and a loss. Friday the Golden Gophers dominated the ice at Mariucci Arena walking away with a 4-1 win. They couldn't hold onto the momentum, however, and Saturday night the Minnesota Gophers lost to Bemidiji State 2-6.

Golden Gopher Hockey this season has been very back and forth, they are up and skating well one night and then turn around the next night and fall flat on their faces. If the Gopher Hockey Roster wants to skate away with some big wins this season they are going to have to build up their stamina and mental game, no more sloppy skating please!

The University of Minnesota Men's Hockey team will take on Minnesota Duluth tonight and tomorrow at Mariucci Areana. Gopher Hockey Tickets are still available for the game!

Minnesota Golden Gophers say goodbye to first season at TCF Bank Stadium with a big win against SDSU

The Minnesota Golden Gophers have had a great inaugural season at TCF Bank Stadium. Last Saturday the Gophers Football Roster said goodbye to TCF Bank Stadium for the year with a big win against the South Dakota State University Jackrabbits.

The Gophers beat the Jackrabbits 16-13 after taking advantage of a late in the game ball drop by SDSU. With a 25-yard field goal the Minnesota Golden Gophers became BCS Bowl Eligible for the second season in a row.

The Minnesota Golden Gophers Football Team has one game left on the Gopher Football Schedule, a conference match-up against the University of Iowa Hawkeyes this weekend in Iowa City. Gophers-Hawkeyes kickoff is at 11:00 a.m.

Go Gopher Football!

Minnesota Golden Gophers Basketball Team pulls off two great wins

Tubby Smith must be happy going into this weekend's Minnesota Golden Gophers Basketball Season Opener. Last weekend the Gophers Basketball team played two exhibition games beating Minnesota-Duluth 114-47 and MSU-Moorhead 98-49.

Tonight the Golden Gophers Men's Basketball Team is taking on Tennessee Tech in the first official game of the season. There are still great Minnesota Gophers Tickets left for this game, so don't miss your chance to see the Gophers kick their season off!

Although there are 5 new and inexperienced players on the Gophers Roster, Coach Tubbby Smith is confident that if his players can play the game they have practiced they are likely to walk away with another win.

Go Gopher Basketball!

Minnesota Golden Gophers Hockey win one and lose one against the Wisconsin Badgers

There seems to be a pattern developing with Minnesota Golden Gophers Hockey team. Play the first game of the series and lose, then turn around and beat them the second night.

Last weekend was no exception. Friday night the Minnesota Gophers went to Wisconsin the play the Badgers Hockey Team. The Badgers kicked Gopher ass 2-4. A few crucial turnovers probably cost the Gophers the game and it was clear that the MN Gophers Hockey Roster were not going to let it happen again.

Saturday night's game against the Badgers went much better, with the Gophers beating the Badgers 5-2. The Minnesota Golden Gophers Hockey team pulled out a great game thanks in large part to Alex Kangas who made a career high 45-saves.

This week the Gophers take on Bemidiji State at Mariucci Arena.

Minnesota Golden Gophers Football lose to Illinois

The Minnesota Golden Gophers football team made every effort to play without senior and team leader Eric Decker, and despite strong play making and good judgement by other team leaders, the Golden Gophers couldn't pull off a win against Illinois. With a final score of 35-32, the Minnesota Golden Gophers clearly tried and almost succeeded.

Adam Weber pushed his touchdown pass record up to 51 and now only trails the University of Minnesota record for most career touchdown passes by 4. Cedric McKinley a Gopher Defenseman made his career high tackles.

Minnesota Gophers fans are eager for Eric Decker to return to the field. The team will play at TCF Bank Stadium this Saturday against South Dakota State

Minnesota Gophers Hockey turns it around to sweep Alaska

The Minnesota Gophers Men's Hockey team had been off to a rough start this season. After winning their first exhibition game, the Gopher Hockey Roster seemed as if they forgot how to skate. They lost their season opener, tied their next game and then got swept by Denver.

This weekend the bad luck changed for the Minnesota Golden Gophers Men's Hockey team. This past weekend they swept Alaska, Anchorage with a 5-1 win on Friday and a 4-1 win on Sunday. The Gopher Hockey team needed the win to get themselves back on track after the rough start. They play next in Friday November 6th in Madison, WI.

Minnesota Golden Gophers Football beat the Michigan State Spartans

While most of the country was dressed up in costumes tricking and treating, the Minnesota Golden Gophers football roster was dressed up in their Gopher football jerseys winning. The Gophers played the Michigan State Spartans on Saturday at TCF Bank Stadium.

The victory was the sweetest for University of Minnesota Senior, Adam Weber who had a career and school record day for passing with 505 yards of total offense. Weber who has had a great season so far anyway, showed his coaches, teammates and fans alike that he deserved the leadership spot he was given this summer.

After just 20 seconds in the game, the Gophers had already scored and the momentum never slowed down. With a final score of 42-34 the Minnesota Golden Gophers Football roster walked away on Saturday very happy.
