Over the last two seasons, Michigan has dominated Minnesota in an almost inexplicable fashion. The Wolverines have topped the Gophers in four straight games despite being underdogs in three of the four contests. Michigan’s wins have been important, namely the 2009 game at the Barn that cemented Michigan’s NCAA tournament bid. The last four wins over Minnesota have all ended Michigan losing streaks of two or three games. When the goings been tough, playing Minnesota has been just what the doctor ordered for the Wolverines.

Now here we are again. Michigan limps into the game in a hapless manner, trudging through a five game losing streak. On the other hand, Minnesota brings the more talented team to Ann Arbor on a two game winning streak and is ranked 15th in the country. Will Michigan top Minnesota again or will Michigan reminisce about catch phrases like “Queme Los Barcos” rather than looking forward to the rest of the season.
