The 25th ranked St. Cloud State Huskies (5-1) are on the road today to face the University of Mary (4-2) in Bismarck at 2:30. St. Johns (5-1) will be in Northfield to battle Carleton College (3-2) at 1:00. And the Gophers (4-2) travel to Northwestern (4-2) to take on the Wildcats at 11:00.
The Huskies are coming off a 55-6 home win over Minnesota-Crookston last Saturday. St. Cloud State is 7-0 all-time against the University of Mary since the series began in 2006. That includes a 3-0 record in Bismarck. SCSU is 2-1 on the road this season, with the only loss at UMD on October 5th.
Saint John’s enters the game at Carleton coming off last Saturday’s 30-28 win over Augsburg in Collegeville. Today’s matchup is the 31st meeting between SJU and Carleton. The Johnnies are an amazing 30-0 all-time against the Knights, including a 12-0 record in Northfield.
The Gophers and Northwestern are both 4-2 overall, but are also both 0-2 in Big Ten play. The last time Minnesota beat Northwestern was in 2009, as Northwestern has won the last three games. The Gophers lead the all-time series 50-33-5. U of M head coach Jerry Kill will miss the game, continuing to take time to focus on his treatment and better manage his epilepsy.
