Minnesota is coming off a 41-14 drubbing of Northwestern on Saturday and that has people starting to think that the team can get to Indianapolis.

The Golden Gophers are 6-2 overall (4-1 in B1G play) and have 4 very winnable games on their schedule the rest of the way. They control their own destiny and that’s all that the fans can ask for.

They host a struggling Fighting Illini team this Saturday and even though the former will be without their top 3 running backs, this is still a game that they should win comfortably.

Here’s what head coach P.J. Fleck had to say about his team going into that matchup during his Monday presser.
