SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Minnesota will play Oklahoma in a neutral-site game this season at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

The Gophers made the announcement Tuesday of the Nov. 9 nonconference matchup, which will be the 25th NCAA Division I men’s basketball game at the Pentagon since the 3,250-seat arena opened in 2013. Minnesota played Oklahoma State there in 2015 and Vanderbilt there in 2016.

The Gophers and Sooners have played eight times in history, each winning four. Their last meeting was in 2004 at the Great Alaska Shootout, a 67-54 victory by Oklahoma. Both teams lost in the second round of the 2019 NCAA Tournament.
