Perfectly set up for a Gophs curb stomping/spread busting coming out party on a national cable TV night game.

Would expect that to come down quite quickly from Neb homers to be followed by a bunch of sharps betting on the gophers.

Right where SP has the differential.

Did any of you guys who think too high see Illini offense vs Huskers?

Penn State 2.5 faves in Kinnick. Sparty 9.5 dogs in Camp Randall.

Go Green! Go White! And, We are! Penn State!

Penn State has Kinnick, Harbaugh at Happy Valley and then to East Lansing, then bye, then has to travel half way across the country and change time zones to face us. We have NE here, at RU, MD here, then bye before hosting PSU.

Nope, SP has differential around 9-10 right now.
Minnesota's performance this week launched them way up the SP+ ladder.
Smart money bet is on the Gophers ATS even at 6.5 this week.

That's before you look at Nebraska's missing QB.

I'm most worried about the weather next week.
34 degrees and sleet at kickoff means that the Gophers passing attack better be prepared for the elements.

But boy I would love to see Minnesota progress this week.
No turnovers and tight throws would be great.

Fleck and co also need to have the Green package ready to rumble because as much as I would love to see this game played in the air, I think it's going to be won in the trenches.

Concur. Nebraska is a very dangerous team with four or five playmakers that can break a game wide open. -3 Nebraska would make more sense. Look for a change as the week goes on.
So you expect a 10 point swing in the line...interesting. I can think of four or five play makers for the gophers who can break it wide open.

Depends. Who will have more fans in attendance?
I was at the Oregon vs Nebraska game in Eugene. Oregon fans told us they had never seen so many visiting fans. Once we all settled in for kickoff it was less than 20% Nebraska fans (I’m guessing) Still impressive but I hope enough gopher fans show up to make it a decidedly home crowd.

Don't be thinking about Penn St right now. That's how you get beat.

We have Nebraska at home, this week.


Granted, I will absolutely be rooting for Penn St to give Iowa another loss. That would set us up nicely, with what I assume will be another Iowa loss in Madison.

-6.5 seems about right for the Gophers at home with two injured QBs on the Nebraska side.

Vegas doesn't see historical school records and reputations when they make the spread. I'm sure it was adjusted to match their injuries and the Gopher defense against Illinois who moved up and down the field against Nebraska.
