Minnesota Football Schedule 2020 Prediction, Best Case Scenario
10-2: The Gophers take care of home early on, rolling through a better non-conference schedule – Florida Atlantic, Tennessee Tech, BYU – than last year, but still workable and beating Iowa on a Friday night. They get to 5-0 with a win at Maryland.
They split the midseason showdowns at Wisconsin and against Michigan, and the push through a three-game stretch at Illinois, at Michigan State and against Purdue before getting a week off. They’re not going 11-1 – they either go through the games against Northwestern and at Nebraska, and lost an earlier battle.
Minnesota Football Schedule 2020 Prediction, Worst Case Scenario
6-6: They suffer a misfire against either Florida Atlantic or BYU, and they lose the Big Ten opener against Iowa. They then struggle way too often in the run of four road games in five weeks losing to Wisconsin and Michigan State, and lose the home game against Michigan.
In the most realistically bad scenario, the Gophers won’t end up with a losing season, but they fight to get through the finishing kick to get to six wins – but lose at Nebraska to close things out.
