This is a huge game that will have potential college football playoff implications. If Minnesota wins the west it will put a damper on whoever faces them in the Big 10 title game.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
Mitch Leidner had an up and down performance in last week’s win over Purdue. The senior passed for 231 yards and an interception, but also chipped in with 74 yards rushing and 2 touchdowns on the ground.
The Nebraska defense was dominated by the Buckeyes last week, as Mike Weber and Demario McCall each ran for over 70 yards.
Look for Leidner to have over 70 yards rushing for the second straight game.
Rodney Smith is powering the Golden Gophers offense. This current 4 game stretch he has over 500 yards rushing and has scored 8 times.
He will need to get the ball early to set the tone in this fame, and if he gets over 20 carries Minnesota will have a good shot at getting the win.
Look for sophomore Rashad Still to be the game-breaker on offense for Minnesota. The sophomore led the way against the Boilermakers with 4 catches for 87 yards, and should use his speed to dominate the secondary for Nebraska.
He will surpass those numbers and have over 100 yards receiving this week.
The Minnesota secondary was beat up by Purdue last week, as they gave up 390 yards passing and 4 touchdowns to the boilermakers. If they play that poorly this week then this game could be over by the end of the first half.
Tommy Armstrong is listed as day to day and is currently in the concussion protocol. If he is not cleared to play against Minnesota then senior Ryker Fyfe will get the nod.
He played terrible against the Buckeyes last week, going 5-18 for 52 yards and an interception. The talent level on defense drops a bit from Ohio State to Minnesota, so don’t expect the same horrible numbers.
It should be a pedestrian effort from the senior, with 150 yards passing and a score as Coach Riley tries to have him manage the game.
Terrell Newby had limited chances to run the ball last week, but he still had a few good runs against the Buckeye defense.
This week should be a game where he gets over 25 touches, because the passing game was inept once Armstrong was knocked out of the game last week.
If he can reach 120 yards on the ground, the Cornhuskers should have a big victory on their hands.
The Nebraska defense had its worst performance of the season, giving up 62 points to the Buckeyes. A normally stout defense had to deal with the loss of their team leader, as well as a raucous crowd in Columbus.
This week they should play much better and continue their fine form they had in previous conference games. Look for them to hold Minny to 17 points.
