April 18, 2013
Games for this weekend versus Michigan State have been canceled, due to unplayable field conditions. The Twin Cities area was hit with a rare mid-April blizzard that painted the cities with 6-10 inches of snow on April 18, which has made the conditions at Jane Sage Cowles Stadium unplayable. The three-game series will likely not be rescheduled.
The Golden Gophers (26-15, 9-5 Big Ten) take the weekend off before welcoming Iowa State to JSC Stadium next Wednesday (April 24) for a doubleheader. The squad will then hop back into Big Ten competition next weekend against Ohio State in Columbus, Ohio.
Tickets for the ISU games can be ordered by phone (612.624.8080 | 1.800.UGOPHER) or online atwww.mygophersports.com.
