Minnesota sets starting QB for Northwestern game, per report
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.
