Gopher football takes on New Mexico State at 7 p.m. tonight, the programs' second meeting in three seasons. As Minnesota kicks off its second game of 2013 on the road, there are several storylines to follow:
-How will the team handle the altitude after showing fatigue last week against UNLV?
-What can we expect from the Gophers run game with Donnell Kirkwood out due to an ankle injury? Sophomore Rodrick Williams will start.
-Expected to see more playing time this week, will true freshman Donovahn Jones be the playmaker Minnesota's receiving corps desperately needs?
-New Mexico State defensive lineman Willie Mobley could have been a Gopher. How will he fare against his home state team?
-Minnesota was upset at home by the Aggies two seasons ago, what's changed since then?
-Going up against an up-tempo offense for the second-straight week, can the Gophers defense stop short-yardage plays that wear down a defense?
–How strong will Derrick Wells be in his first game of 2013 after not playing against UNLV with hamstring and shoulder injuries?
