Gophers excited for outdoor game at Soldier Field


This weekend's Hockey City Classic at Soldier Field will be the Minnesota Gophers' first outdoor game under head coach Don Lucia.

Lucia tells the Pioneer Press that the players are excited and he's hopeful that "we'll get a chance to host one in the not-too-distant future."

With the excitement level for the outdoor game being so high, Lucia has been stressing the importance of staying focused for Friday's game at Wisconson.

All four teams -- Minnesota, Wisconsin, Notre Dame and Miami -- have unveiled the throwback uniforms they'll wear for the outdoor games.
