According to Minnesota Daily, Gophers Head coach Jerry Kill didn't say it, but Saturday's game against Illinois can be one of the most important game of the whole season.
On the other hand, Illinois has been having a terrible season, but their fans still show up for tailgating, reported StarTribune.
Illinois has lost 11-straight Big Ten games including the ones from last season. Plus a 27-7 loss to Minnesota, reported the Minnesota Daily.
In what is suppose to be a sunny day, the Gophers will be wearing their gold pants for the first time on the road and the traditional white jerseys while Illinois will wear orange jerseys and white pants, reported StarTribune.
Coach Kill said to the Minnesota Daily the plan to beat Illinois was mainly to "keep the quarterback inside the pocket and not let him get outside and run around"
