Gopher Football Prepared for Homecoming
After an 1-11 season in 2007, the Minnesota Gophers have made the ultimate comeback and are now 7-1 in the 2008 season.
Homecoming has been the motivating factor for the Gophers in their last two games on the road. Both Illinois and Purdue selected the Gophers to be their homecoming "chumps" in the hopes of an easy win, Brewster and the Gophers had another agenda.
"Coach Tim Brewster made it clear to his football team that the Gophers were being treated with sizable disrespect by being designated as Homecoming opponents," reported the Star Tribune.
The Gophers beat Illinois in an upset 27-20 and held Purdue to under 10 points with a 17-6 victory.
The Gophers will host Northwestern Saturday at the Metrodome for homecoming, hoping to keep their winning streak alive.
