The Nebraska Cornhuskers will take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers on Saturday. The Cornhuskers are looking to end a two-game losing streak. Of course, the biggest question is the status of quarterback Casey Thompson. Thompson exited last week’s game against Illinois with an arm injury, and he is expected to be a gametime decision.
Without Thompson, Nebraska’s offense sputtered against Illinois scoring zero points in the second half. If Thompson is inactive, Chubba Purdy and Logan Smothers should fill in at quarterback.
