Weather-Permitting, Saturday Could Be All About the Wideouts

October 9, 2019

A 5-0 Minnesota team awaits Nebraska on Saturday. One offense that was supposed to be really good will meet one offense that, through five games, has been really good on the strength of Tanner Morgan’s arm. 

“It’s probably going to take more than 13 points this week,” offensive coordinator Troy Walters said, in reference to the Husker point total last weekend against Northwestern.

The Gophers are at nearly 36 per and rank 19th in the country in points per play. 

There’s snow and near-freezing temps in the forecast for Saturday, which may ultimately stunt what could very well become a shootout, but Nebraska isn’t taking the Minnesota approach in terms of prep.
