The #18 Minnesota Golden Gophers (10-2) will face the #12 Auburn Tigers (9-3) this afternoon in the 2020 Outback Bowl in Tampa, Florida.

It will be the first time the two Big Ten and SEC teams have ever faced each other.

Auburn is coming off a 48-45 upset of Alabama in the annual 'Iron Bowl,' while the Gophers enjoyed a 10-win regular season, and were in contention for the Big Ten West title, until the end of the season when they lost to Iowa and Wisconsin.

The game is set to kickoff at 12:00 PM CT. (TV: ESPN, RADIO: 1240 AM & 95.3 FM WJON.)
