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.
