Coming off an impressive 2019 season, Minnesota regressed to a 3-4 record in the truncated 2020 campaign.  However, Minnesota coach P.J. Fleck believes his team is primed for a bounce-back effort in 2021.

Fleck addressed the media at Thursday’s B1G Media Day and touched on a variety of topics, including the season opener vs. Ohio State, his thoughts on the new NIL rules, and the importance of closing out games.

Here’s a sampling of what Fleck had to say:

Minnesota’s Week 1 contest vs. visiting Ohio State will be Thursday, Sept 2. at 8 p.m. (EST) on FOX. It should be a good early test for the Gophers to take on the reigning B1G Champs to start the season.
