Glen Mason (Minnesota) and Joe Tiller (Purdue) were hired 22 days apart in late 1996. But Mason's Golden Gophers are 0-6 against Tiller's Boilermakers. Maybe it's some kind of spell Lou Holtz cast over the Gopher program when he left more than 20 years ago, but is Saturday the day Minnesota finally ends the skid against Purdue (plus 3.5)? Something has to give when the No. 1 rushing offense meets the No. 1 rushing defense (some registration required).
