It’s November, Halloween is over, we still have a few weeks until Thanksgiving, and you can’t deal with leaves all weekend long. Sounds like a good one to get comfortable, find your favorite beverage and turn on the Gophers! Here is the schedule from Friday through Monday for all your Minnesota Gophers sports action and how you can watch or stream all of it through the included links.
Friday November 4th

Volleyball vs Michigan Wolverines 6:30 PM
The second of three home events all starting within an hour of one another is the Gophers volleyball team who hosts the Michigan Wolverines at the Pav.

Saturday November 5th
Football @ Nebraska 11AM--ESPN2
The Gopher football team will look to go into Lincoln and bring home the Chair for the fourth consecutive year when they take on Nebraska at 11 AM. Minnesota is an early 15 point favorite mostly due to the fact that Nebraska QB Casey Thompson is questionable to play, but we have seen this before this season. Read our full opponent preview HERE. The game will air on ESPN 2 with Anish Shroff, Brock Osweiler, and Taylor McGregor on the call. You can stream the game on WatchESPN or listen to the radio call with Mike Grimm, Darryl Thompson and Justin Gaard on 100.3 FM or the I Heart Radio App.
