Western Illinois heads north to take on Minnesota on Saturday afternoon in this college football matchup. The Golden Gophers are looking to protect their home field and get their second win of the season. The Leathernecks, though, are looking to pull off the huge upset and get their first win of the year. The Leathernecks lost the first game last Thursday 42-25 to UT Martin. They got down 21-7 in the first half and never got any closer in the defeat. They will have to be much better on Saturday if they want to pull off the upset of the Golden Gophers.

Minnesota did exactly what it was supposed to do in its first game as it shut out New Mexico State 38-0. The Aggies were led by the Golden Gophers’ former head coach Jerry Kill, but they didn’t give him a very good homecoming.
The Golden Gophers are coming in as a huge favorite in this one, but need to make sure they aren’t looking ahead to their game with Colorado next week.
The Leathernecks have nothing to lose in this game and should come out loose. It may not matter, but stranger things have happened as the Golden Gophers were upset by Bowling Green at home last year.
