Covers Preview - Coming off its best season in a decade, Minnesota faces some elevated expectations entering Thursday's season opener against visiting Eastern Illinois of the FCS. The Golden Gophers went 8-5 a year ago - their highest victory total since a 10-3 campaign in 2003 - and return an intimidating rushing attack loaded with upperclassmen. David Cobb ran for 1,202 yards in 2013, while fellow senior Donnell Kirkwood and junior Rodrick Williams Jr. offer depth at the position.
