6-6 and 9th place in the conference. There should be no bowl.

Is this a televised game, or is it just available on AM radio?

"The Meineke gives Minnesota a chance to play in prime time (8 p.m.) and on national television (ESPN),..." ---- Now the whole country gets a chance to watch them lose.

Purdue probably would have got this bowl if they didn't fire their coach.

Don't worry, even if the Gophers lose they won't embarrass the Big Ten as much as a 2nd tier team like Becky will in the Rose Bowl.

This is a surprise - I have been a season ticket holder since the 80's - this is the first time the Gophers have not been snubbed by a better bowl.
