The Minnesota Golden Gophers have made it official that their upcoming matchup with the Northwestern Wildcats on Saturday, Nov. 23, will kickoff at 11 a.m. at Ryan Field.

The game will be televised on ABC.

The Wildcats have gone from best to worst in the span of one offseason. After finishing atop the Big Ten West standings a season ago, Northwestern has plummeted to the bottom, sitting at 2-8 overall and 0-7 in the Big Ten. The story of their season thus far can be told in one stat: The Wildcats are averaging 9 points per game on offense in conference play.

With that said, the Gophers’ most recent trips to Evanston have not been kind. Northwestern has outscored Minnesota 66-0 in their last two games at Ryan Field.

The Gophers will look to rebound from their first loss of the season.
