It's gameday (for hockey)!

We're just one day away from the Gophers marching into Champaign, IL, on a quest to remain undefeated in Big Ten play and in sole possession of first place in the West.  I'm going to march into Champaign myself, with a few family members, to take in this game in person.  It's my first Gophers road trip (for football) ever, and I'm pretty stoked about it.  I'll be sitting in the Horseshoe, probably wearing a hockey jersey.  Look for me on ESPNU during field goals and extra points on that side of the field.

Enough about me!  Here are your football links.
