Starting in 1892 the Minnesota vs Northwestern game has been played 88 times. That makes Northwestern the 4th most played opponent for the Gophers (only behind the three trophy games against Wisconsin, Iowa, and Michigan). So you'd think I'd have some awesome narrative or tale to share with you guys. Well you'd be wrong. But I do have a bunch of awesome photographs from the 1937 homecoming!

"Whipsaw Northwestern" WHAAAT?!?! LOOK AT HOW HIP THOSE GOPHERS ARE! MAN, FRATS ARE COOL!
