Minnesota coach Jerry Kill hopes Nebraska’s luck does not change when the teams meet in the Twin Cities on Saturday. The Huskers are 2-4 and all of the losses have occurred on either the final play of the game or the waning seconds.
“We have all had, if you coach long enough, years where you feel like you are snake bit a little bit”, said Kill. “They are well coached and I’m just hoping they don’t come out of that part of it right yet.”
The Gophers rushed for 326 yards this past weekend in a 41-13 romp at Purdue and they will try to find a way to run the ball against a Husker defense that is giving up only 95 yards on the ground per game.
“Their defensive line is very physical and I think they are more physical than they have been”, said Kill. “They are very disciplined on defense and don’t make a lot of mistakes.”
