Keys to the game

  • Establish the run. Minnesota’s offensive line outweighs the SDSU defensive front by the weight of the Jackrabbit’s middle linebacker. Run it up. Leave no doubt.
  • Don’t get hurt. I cannot stress this one enough.
  • HAVE FUN! I mean this for everyone. Football is back!

How afraid am I?

On a scale of 1 to 5 “Brewsters on his face” (1 being not a afraid, 5 being very afraid)?

Keeping it old school this week. I’m only 1 Brew afraid of SDSU. I’ll say the same thing I said about Miami (OH) last year...even HE beat the Jackrabbits.

Prediction

Minnesota 37 - SDSU 14
