The Minnesota Vikings have their final preseason game at U.S. Bank Stadium Thursday night. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. against the L.A. Rams. The Twins host the Chicago White Sox at 7:10 p.m. at Target Field.

The University of Minnesota football team also hosts Oregon State at 8 p.m. at TCF Bank Stadium to open its 2016 season. The St. Paul Saints also have a home game at CHS Field, with first pitch slated for 7:05 p.m.
