The University of Minnesota Gopher men's basketball team will open the 2014-2015 season against the Louisville Cardinals in the Armed Forces Classic on Nov. 14.

The third-annual Armed Forces Classic will take place inside the hangar of the United States Coast Guard Air Station Borinquen in Aquadilla, Puerto Rico.

Previous Armed Forces Classics were played in Camp Humphreys, South Korea and in Ramstein, Germany.

This will be the fifth meeting between the Gophers and Cardinals, with Minnesota leading the series 3-1.

The Gophers enter the season coming off of a school-record 25 win season and the NIT championship.
