Three Gopher Questions

  1. How much will Gray play? - This has been discussed here, there and everywhere. But it is what everyone will be watching when the Gopher offense takes the field.
  2. Can the Gopher offense score a lot of points? - This is not a a great Northwestern defense and we should be able to move the ball. But will it translate into points?
  3. Can the Gopher defense contain this dual-running threat? - Colter and Mark resent a unique rushing challenge for our Gopher defense.
