Athan Kaliakmanis is set to start for Minnesota Saturday against Northwestern, marking his 2nd time getting the starting nod for the Golden Gophers.

He led Minnesota to a 20-13 win over Nebraska after Tanner Morgan was knocked out of the game just before halftime. The Huskers led that game 10-0 early before Kaliakmanis led the Gophers to a comeback win, outscoring Nebraska 20-3 after the break.

Kaliakmanis is in his 2nd season of college football and off to a strong start in place of injured started Tanner Morgan. There’s no reason to rush him back from injury, especially after a hot start last week against the Cornhuskers.

Minnesota is looking for its 7th win on the season against the Wildcats. The game is set for 3:30 p.m. Est on the Big Ten Network.
