- Another week into Big Ten play and another week without Sean McEvilly. It's tough to say when he'll be back, but he was still on crutches last week, so it could be awhile. Pat Fitzgerald doesn't always go by the depth chart, but it's certainly not an encouraging sign for NU that McEvilly isn't listed. Now, Northwestern's defensive tackles need to step up against a Minnesota team that likes to run the ball.

- Venric Mark is listed as a co-starter at running back once again, after being listed as the starter once he came back from injury. It will be interesting to see how much he ends up playing.

- Kain Colter is listed at the starter at quarterback, despite leaving the Wisconsin game due to injury. He seemed to be doing a little better than Mark, injury-wise, as he came back in for a series in the second quarter.
