Continued: Gophers' loss might turn into gain

In Jerry Palm’s latest bowl projections on CBSSports.com, he has the Gophers playing Kansas State in the Texas Bowl. He based that partly on Ohio State and Wisconsin getting BCS berths.

Palm also has Nebraska, Michigan and Iowa getting picked ahead of Minnesota in the Big Ten bowl selection process.

The Gophers could bolster their bowl résumé by upsetting Michigan State. The early odds list Minnesota as two-touchdown underdogs, but a victory might land the Gophers in the Jan. 1 Outback Bowl in Tampa, Fla.

Now there’s a way to get fans and recruits excited.

Kill to remain in booth

Kill plans to coach from the booth for the sixth consecutive game at Michigan State, even though he’s made big strides in his battle with epilepsy in recent weeks.

“I’d say it’s best for the football team right now,” Kill said. “I’m in great shape, but I’ve got some marching orders I’m following right now for the best interest of the team and me.”

  • Smoke swirled around Gophers coach Jerry Kill as he watched the seniors being introduced before Saturday’s game againsat Wisconsin. Despite the loss, Kill was energized by the way the Gophers competed physically against the Badgers. “Two physical teams went toe-to-toe,’’ Kill said. “And in the past two meetings we didn’t go toe-to-toe.”
