Despite a tough loss last week to rival Iowa, Minnesota (9-1, 6-1 B1G) enters Ryan Field today with plenty to play for. If the Gophers win out, beating Northwestern, Wisconsin, and the Big Ten East champions, they are still likely to reach the College Football Playoff.
Meanwhile, if Northwestern (2-8, 0-7) wins one of these last two games, they will avoid both a winless Big Ten season and what would be the first time in 30 years that the Wildcats have lost double digit games. So high stakes for both teams, really, in the final home game that Northwestern’s seniors will ever play.
Don’t miss it!
