They weren't feeling the game today.

Week 12 doesn't feature the most exciting slate of games, but you'd expect fans to show up and cheer on their team regardless of the conditions or who they play.

You'd think wrong.

Northwestern hosted Minnesota this afternoon in a matchup of Big Ten West teams.

Not very many people showed up.

With rain in the forecast and a lackluster opponent, fans decided watching the game on TV was a better option than showing up in person.

Minnesota and Northwestern are currently tied 0-0 late in the first quarter.
