Minneapolis, MN (WDAY TV) - It's going to be a great scene in Minneapolis Friday night as the Gopher hockey team heads outdoors to play at TCF Bank Stadium against Ohio State.

Minnesota played at Soldier Field last year, but they felt the drought of playing outside in the State of Hockey needed to end.

Dan Lucia/Gopher Hockey Coach: “It just seemed right having one in Minnesota, it should be here at some point in time and to be a part of the first one I think it makes it extra special.”

Nate Condon/Gopher Forward: “This is great walking out here and seeing this big stadium it's going to be a fun game for us. You got to battle elements, you never think about it watching but there is wind out here. We have an open stadium so it's windy and the temperature obviously be a big factor, guys getting used to it that haven't played outside before. It's just little weather changes that you never expect when you are playing hockey.”
