The winner of Saturday’s Minnesota-Wisconsin game will move on to face Ohio State in the Big Ten championship game the following weekend. Unfortunately for one of the participants, they could very well be missing a very key piece of its running game.
Cobb sustained a hamstring injury in the fourth quarter of the Week 13 win over Nebraska in Lincoln.
Especially when it comes to a game with such high stakes, losing Cobb would be a significant blow for the Gophers.
While Cobb is ninth nationally in rushing, his Gopher teammates on the defensive side of the ball will be tasked with stopping the nation’s leading rusher (2,109 yards) and scorer of rushing touchdowns (25) in Melvin Gordon.
