We have reached week nine of the college football season which means a lot of conference showdowns. In this game it’s a Big Ten showdown on Friday night when the Indiana Hoosiers make the trip to TCF Bank Stadium to take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
The last time these two teams played the Gophers won 42-39.
There always seems to be the question about the Hoosiers is when will this team turn the corner and it doesn’t look like it’s going to be this season.
They got out to a fast start but they come into this game having lost three straight and although the competition was tough, the way they have played has been bad.
In their last game against Penn State they really didn’t play well but the Nittany Lions let them charge back late to make the final score a bit closer.
In this game the Hoosiers need a couple of things to happen. They are on the road so they need to get out to the fast start.
The offense also needs to be good early. The Gophers defense will struggle some games and they need to take advantage of that.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
On the other side of this matchup is the Minnesota Golden Gophers who have to be embarrassed coming into this game and they will try and prove last weekends lost against the Nebraska Cornhuskers isn’t what this team is really made of.
In their last game the defense was torched giving up 53 points and letting the Cornhuskers offense do whatever they wanted.
The only good news to come out of that game was their backup quarterback Tanner Morgan played well and all signs point to him going this weekend instead of Zack Annexstad who is dealing with injury.
Morgan gives the Gophers offense a running element they didn’t really have with Annextstad and the Cornhuskers defense couldn’t stop it.
If he does start look for the read option to be a big part of the offense and the Gophers run game to be a strength.
