That giant gang of ranked teams at the end of the season looked to be the most intimidating part of the Minnesota Golden Gophers schedule, and it hasn't let up for a second. Slumping Minnesota have lost four in a row now and six of their last eight games and it doesn't look to get any easier, even as the games against teams like Michigan State and Ohio State are now behind the Gophers.
Minnesota still have two games against ranked competition from the conference remaining in their last three games, against Wisconsin and this weekends match up on Sunday against the Indiana Hoosiers at 1 PM Eastern Time. 5-10 Minnesota are falling quickly away from the NCAA Bubble and need to win at the very least one of the last three games they have this season.
