We have reached week nine of the college football season and this is an important Big Ten showdown.
The Maryland Terrapins make the trip to TCF Bank Stadium to take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers. This is a big-time game for both teams.
It has been up and down season so far for the Maryland Terrapins but a win in this game would really boost their season.
Coming into this season they have only have won three games, but over their last five games they only have one win and that was over Rutgers.
The offense has been up and down this year and the inconsistency has hurt them, but the biggest issue has been the defense.
Two games ago against Purdue they gave up 40 points and in the last game against the Indiana Hoosiers they gave up 34 points.
The big question for the Terrapins is who is going to start at quarterback. Josh Jackson has missed the last couple of games and if he can’t go it will be Tyrrell Pigrome.
Coming into this game Pigrome has thrown for 599 yards, three touchdowns, and three interceptions.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
On the other side of this matchup is the Minnesota Golden Gophers who have a true path to the Big Ten title game, but they can’t overlook this game.
They come into this game with a 7-0 record and although they had some trouble winning games early in the season they have turned it around and are now dominating teams.
Over their last three games they have given up a total of 31 points, and have scored at least 34 points in each of the three games.
The strength of the Golden Gophers is the offense. Tanner Morgan isn’t a superstar but he makes all the right throws that a quarterback needs to.
They have three running backs who share the load, and two wide receivers in Tyler Johnson and Rashod Bateman who will be playing on Sunday’s.
The Golden Gophers have a matchup with Penn State next weekend and the one thing they can’t do is overlook this game.
