The 19th-ranked Cornhuskers (7-2, 4-2 Big Ten) host Minnesota (7-2, 4-2) at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Memorial Stadium. Nebraska took a big hit in the latest College Football Playoff poll, dropping from tenth to 19th after its blowout loss at Ohio State a week ago. But there’s no time focus on that; instead, Minnesota comes to Lincoln in a game with surprising Big Ten West implications.
Minnesota, Wisconsin and Nebraska sit tied atop the Big Ten West, but Minnesota has yet to play Wisconsin. The Gophers control their own destiny; meanwhile, Nebraska needs to win out and hope the Gophers upset Wisconsin to end the year.
Either way, a win this weekend is exactly what Nebraska needs.
