    I would love to see a home and home series with them, in late November.

    They are less than elite!

    I guess that would make Minnesota the only BIG school to have beaten both teams? Would someone please check to see if
    Penn State has beaten Clemson? If so, they would join us in that elite circle

    Cool! Thanks for the link. Any reason why we've played Pitt and Washington so many times compared to other teams in their conference?

    During the Bierman years (1932-1941, 1946-1951) Washington was a favorite foe, not sure why - probably played at least ten times. Since the traveling team would have to literally spend a week on the road to and from the game via train (multi-day trips with a practice stop along the way - Gophers always practiced somewhere in Montana), they would always play first game of season so as to not affect the schedule as much. Washington did not have a lot of other non-conference "D1 type" teams nearby which may have added to the attraction for them.

    Pittsburgh was also a favorite in the earlier years - one forgets that they were an independent program (no conference affiliation) until 1991 - probably always looking for a game somewhere.
