per Ryan:

1. Ohio State at Minnesota
This is a slam dunk. Minnesota did not get its shot at Ohio State in its breakthrough 2019 season and it isn’t on the schedule this year. The Golden Gophers should contend in the West with Tanner Morgan and Rashod Bateman, and Ohio State is a national title contender again. Morgan and Justin Fields would be a matchup of 2 of the top quarterbacks in the country.

Minnesota has proven it can play with some of the elite programs in beating Penn State and Auburn in 2019, but Ohio State is a different level. The Golden Gophers have lost 11 consecutive and 27 of 28 matchups to the Buckeyes dating to 1982.

Ohio State and Minnesota are slated to open the 2021 season in Minneapolis, but that wouldn’t include the likes of Fields and Bateman — likely 2 of the most exciting players in the country this season — since they will be in the NFL by then. Let’s see the matchup in 2020.


Go Gophers!!

This year is going to be weird. Whether we have bowl games or not. Playing OSU makes a lot of sense.

I'd rather win the Big Ten West and play OSU in the Big Ten Championship game. If we play them next year in Minneapolis anyways.....I'd prefer to play someone more manageable.

If they keep the same existing 9 matchups for each team, I think it's a near certainty our 10th game will be at home against Penn State. Wisconsin will host Ohio State.

It won't be based on who played last year. It will be based on order of finish because that is fair and perfectly fits with the existing schedule.

You didn't want to play Auburn either, I suppose.
