Nebraska’s 2019 season may not be going according to plan. The Huskers were supposed to win the Big Ten West division this year, but are off to a 4-2 record and are 2-1 in B1G play.

A 48-7 loss to Ohio State at home wasn’t supposed to happen. But, the season must go on. And this week, Nebraska is set to travel to take on a 5-0 Minnesota team.

Last week, the Huskers stymied Northwestern, winning 13-10. Thank you, Nebraska defense.

On Tuesday during his weekly press conference, Minnesota coach P.J. Fleck took time to talk about the Huskers’ defensive line in particular:

“They’re big, they’re strong, they’re active, they do a lot of different things up front which constantly keep you on your toes. You gotta prepare for a lot against them. They make it very difficult on you.”

Fleck’s team may be 5-0 and seems to be hitting its stride. However, Nebraska is still a Big Ten team. It has a defense that is capable of holding opposing B1G offenses. It showed that last week.

Minnesota is coming off a 40-17 victory over Illinois in which it rushed for 332 yards. If the Golden Gophers want to remain unbeaten and defeat Nebraska, running the ball successfully will be crucial.

Game time is slated for a 7:30 p.m. ET start on Saturday, Oct. 12 in Minneapolis. The game will be televised on FS1.
