Gophers add another SDSU football game for 2019

The South Dakota State University football team will play the University of Minnesota twice in the span of five seasons, officials announced Tuesday in a news release.

The two schools had already agreed to play each other in the 2015 season opener, but that game has been moved from a Saturday to Thursday, Sept. 3. SDSU and Minnesota also have agreed to a 2019 season-opening matchup on Thursday, Aug. 29.

Both games are scheduled to be played at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

SDSU and Minnesota last met during the 2009 season, with the Golden Gophers pulling out a 16-13 victory on their home field. Minnesota leads the all-time series, which dates back to 1905, by a 7-0 count.
