The Gophers face uncertainty at quarterback as Tanner Morgan left last week’s loss at Illinois after taking a hit to the head. He was evaluated at a medical center before being cleared to fly home. If Morgan can’t play, either Cole Kramer or Athan Kaliakmanis will get the start.

Minnesota’s defense is looking to bounce back from allowing nearly 500 yards at Illinois, including 180 on the ground and a 40-yard touchdown reception to star running back Chase Brown. The Gophers face a "White Out" at Beaver Stadium in front of more than 100,000 fans, in a game that’s nationally televised.
