After winning three of their final four games last year, coach P.J. Fleck has been quoted as saying he welcomes the expectations, entering his third season at Minnesota.  After going 7–6 in 2018 with one of the youngest teams in the nation, the Gophers return almost all of their offensive weapons and over half on the defensive side of the ball. As a result, ticket prices are up to their highest level this decade.  With visits from Penn State, Wisconsin and Nebraska, the action will be packed at TCF Bank Stadium and SaturdayTradition partner TicketIQ breaks down all the ways to buy for 2019, including some valuable perspective on when to buy directly from Gopher Sports and when to use the secondary ticket market.
