Week 13 of the college football season is here and this is an important Big Ten showdown.
The Minnesota Gophers make the trip to Ryan Field to take on the Northwestern Wildcats. Last year the Wildcats won 24-14.
The Minnesota Gophers lost their first game in their last game but they still control their own destiny to make the Big Ten championship game.
They got off to a slow start against the Iowa Hawkeyes and even though they had a big second half, it wasn’t enough as they lost by four points.
For the Gophers it’s all about Tanner Morgan, Rashod Bateman, and Tyler Johnson who have carried the offense this year. The running game has also been strong and defenses haven’t been able to key on one area.
On the season they are averaging 35.7 points per game and the offense is going to need to be elite in this game. They do have a big question mark in this game surronding Tanner Morgan and if he will be able to go in this game after suffering a concussion against Iowa.
If he can’t go, it will probably be Freshman Jacob Clark who will get the start, and the Gophers could be in some trouble.
On the other side of this matchup is the Northwestern Wildcats who are coming off a big win over UMass but for most of the season they have been really struggling.
In their losses this season they haven’t scored above 22 points and in only two of the games they scored 15 points or more.
On the season the Wildcats are averaging 14.5 points per game while the defense is giving up 23.5 points per game. In this game that defense is going to need to step up.
Even if they step up chances are they aren’t going to hold the Gophers to 15 or 20 points so the offense is also going to need to find a way to move the ball.
One of their biggest issues on offense has been the turnovers, The quarterbacks are combining to throw for only four touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
If they continue to turn over the ball in this game, the Wildcats are going to have a lot of issues winning this game.

If Tanner Morgan is out this is a game I would stay far away from just because it’s hard to know what the Gophers backups can do.
