Minnesota coach Don Lucia was asked Wednesday, Oct. 18, at his weekly press conference about the history of the rivalry between UND and Minnesota.
"All you've got to do is YouTube," Lucia said, "and you can see some interesting stuff that went on between the games -- a few gloves on the ice, some interesting handshake lines, maybe a bird flying through the arena."
Indeed, the YouTube era has captured some of the rivalry's crazy moments.
There have been scrums, fights, and yes, two handshake-line scuffles in the last 10 years.
Some pre-YouTube era footage has even made its way on.
Here are some of the wildest moments between North Dakota and Minnesota that have been captured on YouTube:
