Last year's Hockey City Classic was held at Minnesota when the Gophers beat Ohio State 1-0 at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. See a highlight reel below.
Two years ago Wisconsin played Minnesota at Chicago's Soldier Field – watch time-lapse video of the rink construction below.
Here's a cool video intro to that game, too.
Wisconsin won 3-2 in front of 52,00 fans. Wisconsin took a 3-0 lead in the second period, but it had to hold off a furious comeback bid from Minnesota in a 3-2 victory Sunday night at Soldier Field.
