and yes, it is in football. Granted it probably wont be for another seven or eight years, but what the hell.
Gophers football coach Tim Brewster wasn't kidding when he said he wanted to play Texas. So Gophers athletic director Joel Maturi has scheduled Texas on a home-and-home series with the dates to be set.
The Gophers and Texas have met only once in football. In 1936, under coach Bernie Bierman, the Gophers defeated the Longhorns 47-19 in Minneapolis.
This is exactly what we wanted. Payback time. I still have trouble sleeping over that 1936 loss.
