Coming off of an easy win in West Lafayette, Northwestern prepares for its toughest remaining challenge, traveling to Minneapolis to take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers. For about the fourth or fifth straight week there are no changes on the offensive side of the ball, understandable after putting up 45 points, but a couple on defense.
The only major change is that Xavier Washington is once again listed as the starter at defensive end with Ifeadi Odenigbo back to the 2nd team. Both will still see the field, but Washington has been far more productive over the last three games with 12 tackles to Odenigbo's 1. The only other change is that Tommy Odell is now listed as the backup safety instead of Parker Westphal. Barring disaster in the last couple of games, this shouldn't matter too much.
