PJ Fleck Show: Gophers host Rutgers looking to end 3-game losing streak

The PJ Fleck Show enters Week 8 on Fox 9, and the University of Minnesota football season is at a crossroads.

The Gophers dropped to 4-3 on the season, 1-3 in Big Ten play and are now on a three-game skid after losing at Penn State 45-17 Saturday night. For the first time in a month, the Gophers are back home this week to host the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.

PJ Fleck joins Fox 9’s Pierre Noujaim, Gophers’ analyst Ron Johnson and KFAN sideline reporter Justin Gaard to talk about Saturday’s loss to the Nittany Lions, where the season goes from here and hosting Rutgers on Saturday. They also tell thief story of a young Gophers fan on the road to recovery from getting a heart transplant.

The Gophers are all but out of the Big Ten West conversation with five regular season games to play. They can still earn a bowl game with at least two more wins, and still have games against rivals Iowa and Wisconsin.
