Gophers gearing up for Thursday’s bowl game at Yankee Stadium

The University of Minnesota football team is in New York City getting ready to take on Syracuse in Thursday’s Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium.

The Golden Gophers are 8-4 on the season and hoping to register a second consecutive nine-win season.

Minnesota senior linebacker Mariano Sori-Marin is playing in his final game as a college player and says going out with nine wins would send him and his senior teammates out on a “strong note.”

The Orange enters play on Thursday with a 7-5 record, having dropped five of their past six games. The Gophers will attend tonight’s New York Rangers-Washington Capitals NHL game at Madison Square Garden as part of bowl week festivities in New York.

Thursday’s game kicks off at 1 PM.

Listen to Thursday’s game with coverage beginning at 11 AM on AM 1480 KAUS.
