Current Records: Nebraska 3-4; Minnesota 3-2
What to Know
The Minnesota Golden Gophers should come into this matchup well-rested after a week off from action. Minnesota and the Nebraska Cornhuskers will face off in a Big Ten battle at noon ET Saturday at TCF Bank Stadium. The Golden Gophers will be strutting in after a win while Nebraska will be stumbling in from a loss.
Minnesota was able to grind out a solid victory over the Purdue Boilermakers two weeks ago, winning 20-13. Minnesota's RB Treyson Potts filled up the stat sheet, punching in one rushing touchdown.
Meanwhile, it was a hard-fought matchup, but Nebraska had to settle for a 32-29 defeat against the Michigan Wolverines last week. That makes it the first time this season the Cornhuskers have let down their home crowd. QB Adrian Martinez put forth a good effort for the losing side as he passed for three TDs and 291 yards on 28 attempts in addition to rushing for one TD and 38 yards.
The Golden Gophers are expected to lose this next one by 4.5. Those who got lucky with them against the spread two weeks ago might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the squad has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
Minnesota is now 3-2 while Nebraska sits at 3-4. Two offensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: Minnesota is stumbling into the game with the 217th fewest passing yards per game in the nation, having accrued only 141.8 on average. The Cornhuskers' offense has more to brag about, as they they come into the contest boasting the 11th most overall offensive touchdowns in the nation at 30. So the cards are definitely stacked in their favor.
