Coming off an emotional victory on the road against Iowa, Northwestern opened as 3-point road favorites against the 5-5 Minnesota Golden Gophers earlier this week. By Saturday morning, that line had moved all the way to Minnesota -3, which suggests that everybody was betting on the home underdog, causing a significant line move.
