per Jace:

Pitino’s Gophers upset the Badgers 81-68 in the coach’s first game against Wisconsin in January 2014. But he has lost to Minnesota’s biggest rival in each of the five meetings since.

But with an improved record and a returning fan base, the Gophers feel they have a chance to notch another upset in front of their biggest crowd of the season.

“We definitely have a better chance of winning than we did in previous years,” Mason said. “It’s going to be exciting. It’s going to be a great atmosphere. It’s going to be fun to see how our young guys react to all the fans and the big rivalry game. We’re ready for it. We’re excited.”
