Minnesota’s P.J. Fleck is just 40 and still one of the youngest major college football coaches in the country. This year he has one of the oldest teams. The Gophers have a bounty of experience returning this fall, led by quarterback Tanner Morgan and running back Mo Ibrahim. They’re in their fourth season in the program. The offensive line in front of them features sixth-year players in Conner Olson and Sam Schlueter. Minnesota opens on Sept. 2 against powerhouse Ohio State. The Gophers went 3-4 in the pandemic-altered 2020 season.
