Minnesota is already 1-0 in Big Ten play thanks to a season-opening win over Nebraska on Aug. 31.

The Gophers are looking to go to 2-0 in league play for the second time under Fleck, also doing so in 2019 when they opened 6-0 against Big Ten foes.

A win Saturday would mark the 37th time in program history Minnesota won its first two conference games and just the third time since 2004 (started 3-0 in B1G in 2014).

Kickoff Saturday at Northwestern is set for 6:30 p.m.
