Coming off a victory over Air Force last Saturday, the Gophers will bring a 4-3 record to Gallagher-Iba Arena for the team’s first true road dual of the season after hosting four teams and competing in three neutral site matches at the Northeast Duals in New York. The Cowboys are 0-1 so far this season, dropping their lone dual to Iowa, 18-16, at the Grapple on the Gridiron at Kinnick Stadium on November 14.
