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.”

Go Gophers!!
