There will be two rounds on Saturday and one on Sunday. Play will begin with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. both days.

The lineup: Mendez, Jon Trasamar, Alex Gaugert, Jon DuToit and Matt Rachey make up the Gophers' travel squad for the weekend. Minnesota tied for third at last year's Hawkeye Invitational. Gaugert entered the final round tied for first and ended up finishing fourth.
