The University of Minnesota has been one of the biggest surprises of the season and they will face a tough test on Saturday night as they travel to Los Angeles to face USC.
The only blemish on the Minnesota Golden Gophers' record this season is a loss to #2 Duke University at the Battle 4 Atlantis.
After their loss to Duke in the opening round of the Thanksgiving weekend tournament, the Gophers pulled off upsets over the University of Memphis and Stanford University to start a five-game winning streak.
Since their trip to the Bahamas, the Gophers have beaten Florida State University, the University of North Florida and South Dakota State University.
The USC Trojans have not been as fortunate this season as the 9-1 Gophers this season.
The Trojans come into Saturday's game at the Galen Center on a four-game losing streak, which includes losses to the University of Nebraska, Marquette University, San Diego State University and the University of New Mexico.
USC is struggling mightily to win a game at the moment and a perfect way to break out of their losing streak would be an upset win over Minnesota at home.
