October is the best month for college football, and it is getting started on the right foot this weekend. The first weekend in October will serve up six games between top 25 teams, which will be a nice breath of fresh air after the last few weeks.
The Golden Gophers could very well be without quarterback Mitch Leidner and tight end Maxx Williams again this week, so look for the game plan against Michigan to look a lot like it did against San Jose State: a lot of running back David Cobb.
Unfortunately for the Big Ten, the chance to prove itself on the national stage in 2014 has officially been missed.

Jerry Kill finishes his weekly series with Dave Lee….Listen to his views on Michigan State.
Minnesota is playing meaningful Big Ten games in November. Wisconsin visits Saturday in a rivalry game that might have wider implications than reclaiming Paul Bunyan’s Axe. A visit to Michigan State looms next week, though coach Jerry Kill isn’t looking behind the Badgers.
