Nebraska heads to the Twin Cities to face Minnesota coming off a bye week and two wildly different results. In the Cornhuskers' conference opener, they were embarrassed by Wisconsin, 48-17. The following week, Nebraska was down 27-6 to Ohio State in the third quarter, and things were looking bleak for Bo Pelini's team.

But Nebraska pulled off the biggest comeback in school history, defeating the Buckeyes 34-27 to the delight of the Homecoming crowd in Lincoln. Now, with a week of rest, they face a Minnesota team that has struggled mightily after a close loss to USC in the season opener.

Nebraska has home games against Michigan State and Northwestern upcoming, but they have to take care of business against the Gophers on Saturday.
