Great Green Gobs of Yards on the Ground? | I-80 Preview Podcast

December 10, 2020

Minnesota running back Mohamed Ibrahim ranks 17th nationally in rushing yards (817) and sixth nationally in rushing touchdowns (13). He’s played just five games this season. The Gophers’ response to all of the challenges this season has presented was to hand the ball to Ibrahim, and it has worked in terms of keeping the offense on track. Minnesota is startlingly efficient for a 2-3 team.

It needs to be because the defense has been as startlingly inefficient. The Gophers were struggling to stop much of anything at the end of the November, the last time this team has seen the field after dealing with an outbreak on the team.

How should Nebraska’s offense––which is also pretty efficient for a two-win team––exploit that? Who are the players that have to play well? What’s the weather going to be like?

We answer all those questions on the way to previewing Huskers-Gophers on the latest episode of the I-80 Preview podcast.

The I-80 Preview will have new episodes each week during football season. You can listen to the new episode below or, better yet, subscribe via Apple Podcasts, Spotify or your preferred pod purveyor.

The I-80 Preview podcast is a Hurrdat Media production.
