Back to football
Somehow, the Gophers have to get back to blocking and tackling on Sunday:
•The team has a scheduled practice on Sunday afternoon, its first since Wednesday. Instead of practicing on Thursday, the team stood in formation on the U indoor practice field and announced it was boycotting all team activities.
•The team is scheduled to leave for San Diego on Friday, giving the players a few days to practice in Southern California before taking on Washington State on Dec. 27.
