Day seemed pretty confident that his defense would fire off on all cylinders during rivalry week.
“Just not having Tommy out there, you know, we’ve had a couple of guys down,” Day said after the Minnesota win. “I think we should be at full capacity next week, which is great. But it’s all going to be tested next week. But we are seeing the strides. I mean, it is what it is. We’re getting better every week.
“But it’s all good. It’s all headed towards the end of the season playing our best football … I will try to give you guys somewhat of an update next week. But yeah, we’re expecting to get everybody back.”
