Result:
WIN

The Gophers are perhaps one of the most improved teams in the country. Last year their lone win came early against Miami Ohio, but this year they are 5-1 and Bowl worthy with a win here. Adam Weber has been big, having thrown for 1,428 yards with eight TDs and just two INTs. The running game has accounted for 14 TDs already as well - a far cry from last year. Illinois is nowhere near where they were last year, but they are still a pretty good team. The offense has been generating points, but for this team to be giving double-digits to a competent offense makes no sense. The Illini are surrendering just about 30 ppg, so Minnesota is going to get its points here. Don't forget they put up 21 on the road vs Ohio State. The Gophers defense is vastly better as well. After giving up 30+ last year in all but one game, they have allowed 30 just once this season. Too many points here, and I'll take the Gophers to hang tough.
