What you need to know about Minnesota
Minnesota came up short against Ohio State last Thursday, falling 45-31. A silver lining for Minnesota was the play of RB Mohamed Ibrahim, who rushed for two touchdowns and 163 yards on 30 carries. However, Minnesota's star running back will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a lower-leg injury in last week's loss to the Buckeyes.
Despite losing Ibrahim, Minnesota will enter Saturday's contest confident it can secure a big win. That's because the Golden Gophers are 7-0 in their last seven games against an opponent from the Mid-American Conference. In addition, Minnesota is 5-1-1 against the spread in its last seven games when playing as the favorite.
