If you love shoveling heavy, wet snow and are looking to make some money, then TCF Bank Stadium has the perfect gig for you. 

The University of Minnesota is looking for people to shovel snow at the stadium in advance of Saturday's Big Ten showdown between the Gophers and Badgers, and shovelers will be paid $14 an hour. 

Registration to shovel actually started Tuesday, but you have until 5 p.m. Wednesday to sign up. All you have to do is bring two forms of identification to Gate C at TCF Bank Stadium. Only people 18+ years of age are allowed. 

To recap: Show up, show ID, shovel, get paid. Seems easy enough! 

Plus, the $14/hour wage is $4 more than it was when they paid shovelers in 2014. 

Also, here are some tips on how to not get hurt or die while shoveling. Seriously.

The Gophers (10-1) face the Badgers (9-2) at 2:30 p.m. Saturday. The winner will win the Big Ten West Division and get a spot in the Big Ten Championship Game against Ohio State.
