Pregame: Gophers vs. Nebraska

by Nate Gotlieb

The Gophers (5-2, 1-2 Big Ten) and Cornhuskers (5-1, 2-0 Big Ten) kick off in about 20 minutes at TCF Bank Stadium.

Minnesota is coming off a win against Northwestern in Evanston, Ill., last week.  Nebraska had a bye last Saturday after beating Purdue on Oct. 12.  

Senior Taylor Martinez will start at quarterback for the Cornhuskers.  Martinez missed the team's last three games with a turf toe injury.  

The Gophers haven't announced their starting quarterback yet.  Redshirt freshman Mitch Leidner did take reps with the first-team offense this morning, however.  

Sophomore running back Rodrick Williams Jr. will not play for the Gophers today because of a foot injury.
