We have reached week twelve of the college football season which means most games are conference showdowns. In this game it’s a Big Ten showdown when the Northwestern Wildcats make the trip to TCF Bank Stadium to take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
The home team has won the four games played between the two teams.
The Northwestern Wildcats have already clinched their spot in the Big Ten title game, but they still want to finish this season strong and really try to play with some sort of consistency.
They come into this game having won five of the last six games with the only loss coming against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
They were some real battles though including against Iowa and Nebraska, and without much work they could have lost that game.
This is a team averaging 23.6 points per game, and on the defensive side of the ball they are giving up 23 points, so although it hasn’t been pretty they have done enough.
In this game the defense is going to need to be good. The Gophers offense has shown they can put up points so they need to slow it down.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
On the other side of this matchup is the Minnesota Golden Gophers who have had an up and down season but are only one win away from making a bowl game.
Two games ago the defense really struggled against the Fighting Illini giving up 55 points and that led to a bad loss.
In their last game against Purdue the defense stepped up in a big way giving up ten points while the offense scored 41 and that led to a victory.
At quarterback the Golden Gophers are led by Tanner Morgan who has thrown for 948 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions.
In this game he just can’t turn the ball over. If he makes good decisions with the ball they will be in a good shape.
