Why Northwestern will/won’t beat Minnesota

Northwestern heads into Saturday to take on a 9-1 Minnesota team at home that is still clinging on to playoff aspirations . The Gophers are coming off their first loss of the season — will Northwestern be the perfect shot at a comeback, or will the ‘Cats get lucky and pull off a monumental update on Senior Day?

Minnesota quarterback Tanner Morgan is in concussion protocol, according to the latest update from head coach P.J. Fleck. Morgan was injured during the final possession of the Iowa game, and it is unlikely Fleck will announce whether he will be under center until Saturday.
