MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The old adage suggests Northwestern won’t be successful with Kain Colter and Trevor Siemian sharing time at the sport’s most important position.

“If you have two quarterbacks, you don’t have one,” the saying goes.

Northwestern (5-1, 1-1 Big Ten) is expected to try it anyway Saturday at Minnesota (4-1, 0-1), which is coming off its first loss of the season.

The Gophers have their own quarterback-switching strategy. Senior MarQueis Gray returned to practice this week after suffering knee and ankle sprains on his left leg four weeks ago. Max Shortell is expected to start in his place again, but Gray could get his share of snaps.
