We have reached week eight of the college football season and this is a Big Ten showdown.
In this game the Minnesota Golden Gophers make the trip to SHI Stadium to take on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. These two teams have played once before with the Gophers winning by two points.
The Minnesota Gophers have had quite the start to the season and they look like they could be for real in the Big Ten.
They have won each of their first six games of the season and are coming off a beatdown of the Nebraska Cornhuskers in their last game.
The defense has been decent but the true star of the show has been the offense. They have a three headed attack at running back and they have some great receivers outside and it’s hard for teams to slow them down.
They can’t load the box because Tanner Morgan will toss the ball all over the field, and they can’t just play the pass because they will start to run wild.
On the season the Gophers are averaging 35.5 points per game and in this one it’s going to be all about running up the score.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
On the other side of this matchup is the Rutgers Scarlet Knights who fired their coach in hopes of change happening but so far it hasn’t worked out.
They come into this game having only one win, and last Saturday against the Indiana Hoosiers they scored a grand total of zero points.
Over their last five games they have scored only 23 points total, and have been shutout in three of the games and that needs to change.
For the Scarlet Knights their defense also needs to be good in this game. They are giving up 36 points per game and are facing a really good offensive team.
In all honesty it’s probably going to take a miracle to pull off a victory in this game, or even keep it close for that matter.
