The stakes are high for both teams who are undefeated.

The University of Minnesota says they haven't seen a sellout at TCF Bank Stadium since 2015, but Saturday's game is already sold out.

"It's going to be crazy, it's sold out," said Abby Yost, a freshman at the U of M.

"They had so many down years and it's great to see them finally have a team that's competing," said Dennis Levine, who graduated from the U of M in 1966.

"We weren't really sure how good we were going to be," said Noah Rasinski, a senior at the U of M.

Being a senior, Rasinksi has seen the attendance struggle over the last few years.

"I think a lot more students are excited to go," Rasinski said.

The game will be televised in the Northland on WDIO. Kickoff is scheduled for Saturday at 11 a.m.
