It'll be Pitino vs. Pitino in 2014: Gophers head coach Richard Pitino is set to square off with his dad.
A Louisville TV station reported that the Gophers and Rick Pitino's Louisville Cardinals will play early next season. A source close to the Gophers program confirmed the details to KSTP's Darren Wolfson on Tuesday.
One source said that the game more than likely will take place on an aircraft carrier, but added that it's not yet finalized. It's more likely that the game is held stateside, but as the elder Pitino noted, it could also be in Puerto Rico.
It will be an early November game.
