Last time between Minnesota and Northwestern

It was the worst loss to Northwestern in Gophers history as Minnesota couldn't get out of their own way and were blown out by the Wildcats in Evanston, Illinois last season. 

Notebook: Minnesota vs. Northwestern

The Gophers shocked the Boilermakers of Purdue last week with a win, and their season storyline could change even more this weekend against Northwestern at home.

Comparing two second-year coaches

Minnesota head coach P.J. Fleck and Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm share similarities in their career paths. Both coaches had stints playing in the NFL, Fleck as a wide receiver and Brohm as a quarterback. Both started their coaching careers working with notable head coaches, Fleck at Ohio State with Jim Tressel and at Rutgers with Greg Schiano, and Brohm at Louisville with Bobby Petrino.
