Minnesota continues its marked improvement under Jerry Kill. The Golden Gophers, cleaning up the mess left by Tim Brewster, won only three games in 2011, which was Kill's first season as coach. But it went 6-7 in 2012 and 8-5 in 2013. It's going to be tough to get past eight wins in 2014. The November schedule is perhaps the toughest in the land, with games against Iowa, Ohio State, at Nebraska and at Wisconsin.
