Minnesota gave USC all they could handle last week on the road, but coach Jerry Kill is still not pleased. "You can't sit around and go, 'It was nice playing USC close,'" Kill said. "We got beat. I let them know we got beat and I let them know why we got beat, and we took care of it on Sunday."
Despite Kill's comments, the Gophers hanging in there with the Trojans on the road is impressive and could be a sign of better days ahead. Receiver Da'Jon McKnight (WR2/3) and running back Duane Bennett (RB2/3) should find things much easier at home against New Mexico State and are fantasy options this week.
