MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – On Thursday, the Gopher football team tries to start the season right at TCF Bank Stadium against UNLV.
The heat is on for the program, and this time literally. The extreme heat means more players will play in game one.
The Rebels took the favored Gophers to three overtimes in last year’s opener.
In the video above, WCCO’s Mike Max shows how the team is gearing up.
