Coverage isolated to Big Ten+ made watching the first two Minnesota Golden Gophers men's basketball games difficult for most fans, and not much will change when the Gophers host the University of Texas-San Antonio in the third game of the season. 

Friday's game, which tips off at 6:30 p.m. CT, will be available to watch on the streaming service Peacock. So if you're hoping to catch your first look of the 2023-24 Gophers, you'll need a Peacock subscription. 

A Peacock subscription costs $5.99/month and unlike many other streaming services there isn't free trial. No 7-day free trial and no 30-day free trial, so if you plan on watching the game Saturday you'll need to pay for it, if you aren't already. 

It'll be the first of five Gopher games isolated on Peacock this season. The others: 

  • Nov. 18: South Carolina-Upstate
  • Dec. 29: Maine
  • Jan. 4: Michigan
  • Feb. 6: Michigan State

The 2023-24 Gophers have a different look after numerous players from last season's nine-win departed via the transfer portal, opening a lane for an entirely new starting lineup that against Bethune-Cookman featured Elijah Mitchell, Braeden Carrington, Dawson Garcia, Josh Ola-Joseph and Pharrel Payne. 

It's unclear if four-star freshman guard Cam Christie will make his debut. He missed the last game due to an illness.
