Mitch Leidner is officially back for Minnesota, returning from concussion symptoms to take the first snap at quarterback. He promptly hit a deep ball, and having Leidner back is huge for a team that can take a big step toward bowl eligibility today against Rutgers and still has life in the Big Ten West Division.

Minnesota's starting QB Mitch Leidner could return to the lineup today vs Rutgers. Leidner has been cleared to play after missing last week's game while in the concussion protocol. The team will make a decision after Leidner goes through warm ups.

No. 10 Wisconsin and Iowa meet at Kinnick Stadium today in a matchup that could serve as an elimination game from Big Ten West title contention. Wisconsin, 1-2 in the league, likely must win its final six regular season games and hope undefeated Nebraska loses a second game. Iowa, meanwhile, can't afford another conference loss after suffering a 38-31 setback against Northwestern. As usual, a lot will be at stake in the seemingly wide open West.
