Minnesota will be hosting a MAC school for the 2nd straight week as they get set to welcome in the Ohio Bobcats for a non conference clash.
Minnesota snuck by Kent State last weekend in a 10-7 defensive struggle.
The Bobcats bring in a 3-0 record and are fresh off a win against Southeastern Louisiana 35-14.
Kick off is set for 3:30 PM EST on Big Ten Network.
The Bobcats are off to an extremely hot start posting a 3-0 record and they have everything working for them.
Returning 20 starters was the first positive thing for the Bobcats. They have guys on both sides of the ball that were on the 6-6 team from a season ago.
Senior QB Derrius Vick has a pass efficiency of 185.9 and has completed 34 of his 48 pass attempts. The Senior QB has also posted 4 touchdowns to just 2 interceptions.
The Bobcats defense has also been a huge success. They’re allowing only 17.3 points against and 135 rush yards against.
The Golden Gophers are expect to compete with the top teams in the Big 10 this year and have backed it up with some solid play. In fact, they nearly upset preseason #2 TCU in Week 1, but fell just short.
Minnesota comes in off a 10-7 against Kent State, at home, which was disappointing given the success from Minnesota on both sides of the ball. However, the offensive line featured many injuries to it which caused the Golden Gophers a lot of problems.
Minnesota had just 104 rush yards and 184 yards passing in the contest. QB Mitch Leidner finished 17 of 27 with a touchdown and 2 interceptions.
After some questioning of if their would be a QB change, that rumor was quick dismissed. Leidner is 12-7 as a starter for Minnesota and has 17 career rushing touchdowns to his credit.

Ohio should be able to stick with Minnesota here. The Bobcats have been solid on both sides of the ball through their first 3 games and the Golden Gophers offense has looked flat.
