One stat paints ugly picture for PJ Fleck, Minnesota after early deficit vs. Nebraska
P.J. Fleck’s Minnesota Golden Gophers currently trail Nebraska 10-0 at halftime. That is not good for the prospect of the Gophers getting a win in Week 10.
During Fleck’s Minnesota tenure, his teams are 2-19 when trailing after the 1st quarter. A paltry 9.5% win percentage when trailing after 1Q could spell doom for the Gophers in Week 10.

One silver lining could be the Gophers’ opponent. The Huskers are known for blowing leads, with former HC Scott Frost going 5-22 in one-score games during his tenure. The Huskers notably blew leads against Northwestern and Georgia Southern already in 2022.
Fleck will need to get his offense rolling in the 2nd half if the team has any hope of skirting an upset. The unit only has 31 total yards at the half.
