Five-time NCAA national champions, the Golden Gophers burrow themselves in the chilly coliseum of Mariucci Arena, taking knocks and slinging pucks as the UMN's official men’s hockey team. Use today's deal to snag a seat or some standing space and watch them pound pain-induced howls from the University of Alaska Anchorage Seawolves, banishing them back to their underwater homes to eternally serve as Poseidon's newspaper fetchers. Ward off the ice's tundra tendrils with a long-sleeved Golden Gophers shirt as you cackle at team mascot Goldy and his gopher antics, which include tunneling up through the seats to steal popcorn from unsuspecting fans. This ticket is only valid for the game on Friday, January 28, at 7 p.m., and both the ticket and shirt must be picked up at will-call by 5 p.m. any day on the week of the game.
Instead of facing off against rival universities, Augsburg College athletes tackle a different opponent in the summer: boredom. Led by camp director and Augsburg College head football coach Frank Haege, the camps pair the school's athletes and coaches with youths for sessions packed with fun drills and games. Depending on the age group, each camp focuses on a different level of offensive and defensive instructions; younger kids’ non-padded, non-contact camps are peppered with motivational sessions, and high schoolers’ conditioning testing strengthens them for full-contact drills. All-day middle-school camps are also non-contact and instill a sense of friendly competition with flag-football matches and other activities such as dodge ball.
