Gophers football fans eager to watch their team in competition will have to wait until August.

The Gophers moved their spring game at 11 a.m. Saturday from TCF Bank Stadium to their indoor practice facility at Athletes Village. The April snowstorm in Minneapolis was the reason.

Because of the limited space at the indoor venue, the spring game will no longer be open to the public. But BTN2Go will stream the game, and Gopher Radio Network will broadcast it live. It also will show on BTN on tape delay at 4 p.m.

Vikings' preseason set

The Vikings have finalized their preseason schedule, a day after the opponents were revealed. They will play host to Seattle on Sunday, Aug. 18, at 7 p.m. and Arizona on Saturday, Aug. 24, at noon.

Road games will be Friday, Aug. 9, at New Orleans at 7 p.m. and Thursday, Aug. 29, at Buffalo at 6:30 p.m.

The Seahawks (Ch. 9) and Cardinals (NFL Network) games will be nationally televised.

• The Vikings signed two more defensive players from the now-defunct Alliance of American Football league that played its last game on March 31.

Safety Jordan Martin and linebacker Greer Martini are the latest to sign entry-level contracts.

Martin, 24, had four pass deflections and one interception in eight games for the San Diego Fleet. The Syracuse product went undrafted in 2017. Martini, 23, spent last preseason with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame. He most recently played for the Salt Lake Stallions.

McCutcheon deal set

Gophers volleyball coach Hugh McCutcheon and the University of Minnesota agreed to a contract extension for him. In addition, assistants Matt Houk and Laura Kasey were promoted to associate head coaches.

McCutcheon recently completed his seventh season at Minnesota. He led the 2018 team to a Big Ten title and the No. 2 overall seed in the NCAA tournament.


• Sophomore Lexy Ramler of the Gophers was named the North Central Region co-Gymnast of the Year by the Women's Collegiate Gymnastics Association.

• The Gophers beat visiting North Dakota State 4-3 on Tuesday night in nonconference baseball on Max Meyer's walk-off homer.
