Minnesota vs Indiana Game Preview


Why Minnesota Will Win

The Big Ten title is realistically out of the picture now – basically, the Gophers need Nebraska to win its last two games and Iowa has to lose this week to Illinois – but bowl eligibility is locked in, there’s a chance to finish with a strong nine-win season, and after a rough two games, it’s a shot at a win.

Indiana is … struggling.

It has yet to win a game over a Power Five program – Cincinnati CFP backers hate that fun-fact – the turnovers are flowing, there’s nothing happening on third downs, and it’s been ugly with blowout losses to Ohio State, Michigan, and Rutgers over the last month.

What’s Going To Happen

It’s Senior Day. It’s the one chance to make something positive happen out of this shocking mess of a season. Beating Purdue next week would make the year, but the Hoosiers need a home victory.

The problem is an offense that just can’t get going, scoring 15 points or fewer in five of the last six games.

The slow and stodgy style of Minnesota will work. It’ll dominate the clock by dominating the lines. Rutgers was able to run for over 200 yards last week on the Hoosiers, and the Gophers are about to do the same.
