April 13, 2020
2020 Minnesota Gophers Football Preview

2020 Record: 11-2 (7-2)

2019 Scoring Offense: 34.1 
2019 Scoring Defense: 22.5 

2019 Offensive Rank: 22
2019 Defensive Rank: 37

Returning Offensive Production:  82%
Returning Defensive Production:  33%

2020 Recruiting Rank:  38

Offense:  Tanner Morgan is back at QB along with WRS Rashod Bateman and Chris Aultman-Bell,  With 88 catches between them the loss of Tyler Johnson wont be as bad as you'd think.  The o-line should be better, which will help the running game re-emerge after losing RB Rodney Smith.

Defense:  The D is the big question in 2020.  Replacing 5 key starters will be a tough road.

Overall:  Double digit wins is a reasonable goal, but only if the D can produce at last year's level.

Projected 2020 Record: 8-4
