We have reached week eight of the college football season which means a lot of conference showdowns. In this game it’s a Big Ten showdown when the Minnesota Golden Gophers make the trip to Memorial Stadium to take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers
Last year when these two teams played the Golden Gophers came out ahead 54-21.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
The Minnesota Golden Gophers are a young team but they took a big step forward in their last game, even though it was a loss.
They frustrated the Ohio State Buckeyes all afternoon and although the final score said 30-14, it really was a lot closer than that.
The Gophers are led by quarterback Zack Annexstad who has been alright, except for the deep ball. He comes into this game throwing for 1142 yards, eight touchdowns and seven interceptions.
Most of his interceptions are on the deep ball so it will be interesting to see if they try and get away from that in this game.
The Golden Gophers have one of the best receiving corps is in the Big Ten led by Tyler Johnson who is a big time receiver and will probably be on an NFL roster once he graduates.
To win this game the Gophers need the offense to be good and not turn the ball over. If they can do that they can pull the upset.
On the other side of this matchup is the Nebraska Cornhuskers who can’t seem to get the first win in the Scott Frost era.
In the last game it looked like they had it in the bag against the Northwestern Wildcats, but a late charge by the Wildcats led them to a 34-31 loss.
For the Cornhuskers they commit too many penalties and they also seem to make them at the wrong time and it probably cost them the game against the Wildcats.
They had the Wildcats pinned deep, but a 15 yard penalty got them off their own goal line. The Cornhuskers are led by quarterback Adrian Martinez who has thrown for 1167 yards, six touchdowns and five interceptions.
To win this game the Cornhuskers need to get out to a fast start and clean up the penalties. If they continue with the bad penalties they will lose this game.
