A sellout crowd saw the Golden Gophers top the Nittany Lions in a match of previously unbeaten teams.

Congrats to the University of Minnesota Gopher baseball team who won the B1G Tournament over the weekend. The Gophers also won the regular season title this year.

Gopher baseball will now host one of the NCAA Regionals at Siebert Field. Minnesota will face Canisius at 7pm on Friday. UCLA will take on Gonzaga in the other game. The regional is double elimination, and the winner moves on to a Super-Regional.

Top seeded Minnesota beat second seeded Purdue 6-4 in Omaha for the Big Ten Championship. The victory gave the Golden Gophers their 10th tournament title, breaking a tie between Michigan and Ohio State for the most in conference history.


Hockey Karma

Alaska had their annual hockey tourney this weekend, and we had Anchorage, Nebraska Omaha and Mercyhurst in town for what turned out to be some pretty good hockey. I went to three of the four games and saw the Alaska schools sweep.

I noticed the Golden Gophers swept Duluth as well. Not a bad hockey weekend at all.

But what’s with those Longhorns?
