ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - It’s down to business for the Gophers football squad.

The University of Minnesota team is on the ground in Orlando, Florida ahead of its Jan. 1 Citrus Bowl matchup with Missouri. The Gophers were headed to a high school field Friday for a 75-minute practice.

This is the team’s first January bowl appearance since 1962.

The Gophers enter with an 8-4 record. Missouri brings a 10-3 record to the field.

The last time Minnesota and Missouri met in a game was 1970, which the Tigers won.
