Minnesota coach Jerry Kill has not been at practice since taking a leave of absence before the Michigan game, deciding to take time to focus on his management and treatment of epilepsy. But Kill was able to attend Saturday's game with his wife, Rebecca, and may have brought some good luck in the 20-17 win at Northwestern.

Tracy Claeys, serving as acting coach in Kill's absence, allowed the Golden Gophers coach to address the team at halftime and after the win.

Minnesota posted Kill's comments to the team after the game on YouTube. The Golden Gophers (5-2 overall, 1-2 Big Ten) host Nebraska at home on Saturday.
