Soph standouts on D mark strength for Minnesota's future

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Minnesota's final regular season game will be at home against undefeated Wisconsin, the annual opportunity to send off the departing seniors.

There's added incentive for the Gophers of a monumental upset, too, as heavy underdogs in the latest edition of a rivalry that's been lopsided for two-plus decades. The focus at this point in head coach P.J. Fleck's first year on the job, though, is on the future.

For the Gophers, that starts with a group of sophomores on defense that has grown up quickly. Thomas Barber, Carter Coughlin, Kamal Martin and Antoine Winfield Jr. are all Minnesota natives. They're close friends and roommates. They represent the strength of program as it tries to progress under Fleck into 2018.
