Score: 21 - 13
Point Spread: -3/-115 Northwestern
*3 Star Big 10 ATS Value* The Minnesota Golden Gophers have a very good football coach, but this is not a good team at all. After a 4-0 start, they were exposed in last week's 31-13 loss at Iowa. Minnesota's offense is without play maker MarQueis Gray (he may be back for limited action this week) and this team simply doesn't have consistency on the offensive end. Northwestern laid an egg in the fourth quarter last week at Penn State, but I still believe the Wildcats are a pretty good team. Pat Fitzgerald is one of the best in the nation at getting the most out of his talent. This Wildcats fights all the way through the game. Northwestern's secondary is weak, but the Golden Gophers can't throw it much at all. The Wildcats have the much better running game. Look for Northwestern to bounce back from a tough loss last week. Take the Wildcats.
