It's the Gophers first home game in two weeks, and just their third in the last month.

The Gophers (14-11, 3-9) lost in December to the Cornhuskers, 78-68.

Pitino said wing Amir Coffey (shoulder) remains day-to-day. However, KSTP's Darren 'Doogie' Wolfson hears that Coffey isn't expected to play.

Pitino also talked at length about being at the Super Bowl at U.S. Bank Stadium. His wife, Jill, is a big Patriots fan.
