College Football Week 12: Minnesota At #16 Nebraska
|Jerry Kill and the Gophers are bowl eligible after last week’s 17-3 at Illinois, matching their win total from the last two seasons combined.||Coaching||Another week, another comeback victory for Nebraska, which overcame a 20-6 halftime deficit to beat Penn State last week. Bo Pelini’s team just needs to beat two Big Ten basement dwellers to reach the conference title game.|
|This offense is still a major project, but freshman quarterback Philip Nelson has done a nice job the last four games.||Offense||It was a tale of two halves for Nebraska last week, as the Huskers scored all three of their touchdowns in the second half. Taylor Martinez could win Big Ten offensive player of the year.|
|Minnesota is a top-40 defense, not saying all that much considering some of the weaker offenses in the Big Ten.||Defense||The defense was bailed out by a bad call on what should have been ruled a Penn State touchdown, but even so the Cornhuskers forced a safety and played really well in the second half.|
|The Gophers have been below average on special teams, something that will need to change if they want to pull off the upset Saturday.||Special Teams||Nebraska fumbled a punt last week, but on the other side, Brett Maher boomed a 69 yard punt. That’s been Nebraska’ special teams this year—decent in some aspects, really terrible in others.|
