It’s the kind of week Gopher fans have waited for: A big game that has Big Ten, national implications and, oh yeah, the opponent happens to be Wisconsin. It’s the battle of the running backs – sort of.

Mitch Leidner missed that game with injuries, and since he’s returned there have been signs that, yes, this team can throw the ball.
The Minnesota Vikings don’t have a secret to success, really, because their formula is so obvious.
A.J. Barker is third in the Big Ten with 231 yards receiving through three games. He’s tied for third in the league with four touchdowns.
