There's still nothing flashy about the way Minnesota is winning, but after putting the finishing touches on a perfect start outside the conference, the blue-collar approach could make it a dark-horse threat in the Big Ten West. At a minimum, the hard-hitting defense and powerful ground game that fueled the win over Colorado State will make the Gophers a tough opponent each week in the league.

There might not be anybody in the country who makes more of his opportunities to have an impact than Minnesota's Tai'yon Devers. The freshman defensive lineman only has three tackles so far this season -- but all of them have been sacks that also produced fumbles. For Devers, quality clearly trumps quantity at this point.

Whose coaching hot seat is the hottest?

It's just Week 3, but some coaches are feeling the heat. Look no further than the SEC, where there's a buzz around LSU's Les Miles and the Texas A&M-Auburn game could be called the Hot Seat bowl.
