The Wolverines currently hold an overall record of 11-2 and have won their only Big Ten in-conference game so far. The Gophers, meanwhile boast a record of 12-2 but have lost their only Big Ten game.
Michigan has been handed their only losses by ranked teams Duke and Virginia and are coming off a dominating win over Penn State on Thursday. The Gophers suffered a double-overtime loss in their most recent game against Illinois, but Ralph Sampson III had a career game for Minnesota and continues a strong season. He figures to be a player to watch for in Sunday's game.
The game between the Wolverines and the Golden Gophers will tip off at 4:00 PM EST on Sunday, January 1. The Wolverines are favored to win by six points and the game will be televised on the Big Ten Network.
