The Minnesota Golden Gophers’ football team will be on the national stage Thursday night, with No. 2-ranked TCU coming to town. Last season’s mistake-filled, 30-7 loss to the Horned Frogs on the road is surely fresh on the minds of the players that experienced it, but having the advantage of home field this time around stands to bring a more competitive contest.

For the Gophers have any chance to pull a big upset Thursday night, good performances from these five players will be essential.
