Start Times Announced For First Two Home Games

The Big Ten announced today kick times for Minnesota’s home games against Buffalo and Middle Tennessee State this year.

Minnesota’s first game under head coach P.J. Fleck is against Buffalo on Aug. 31 at TCF Bank Stadium and will begin at 6 p.m. The game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network. The Gophers are 1-0 all-time against the Bulls, as they posted a 41-17 home win in 2002.

The Maroon and Gold will play Middle Tennessee State on Sept. 16 at TCF Bank Stadium. That game will start at 2:30 p.m. and will also be broadcast by the Big Ten Network. Minnesota is 2-0 against the Blue Raiders, having posted a road win in 2010 and a home win in 2014.

Minnesota now knows the start time for four games this season, as it was previously announced that the Gophers will play at 9 p.m. at Oregon State on Sept. 9. It was also announced that Minnesota’s Homecoming game – the 97th in Gopher history, but first under Fleck – will start at either 2:30 or 3 p.m. on Oct. 21 against Illinois.

Season tickets for the 2017 season are on sale now and can be purchased here.
