The Minnesota Gophers are coming off their biggest win of the season after beating Nebraska 54-21 last Saturday.

The Gophers will be facing red-hot Northwestern Saturday in Evanston. They have a 5-game winning streak.


"Northwestern is a hot team right now. I have a lot of respect for the job (coach) Pat Fitzgerald has done this season. We'll need to be on our game this Saturday for sure," said Fleck.

The Gophers have beaten the Wildcats three of the last four games they've played.
