Athan Kaliakmanis and the Minnesota Gopher football program had high expectations entering the season.

Following a disappointing campaign that ended with a 6-7 mark and a bowl game victory, the veteran quarterback has found a new home.

It isn't too unfamiliar however, as Kaliakmanis will stay within the Big Ten Conference.

The Antioch, Illinois native is heading to the East Coast for his next college football home, as he will reportedly join the Rutgers football program.

It's an interesting move, and one that could provide a starting gig at the outset.


He had 1,838 passing yards with 14 touchdowns and nine interceptions, while completing 53.1% of his attempts for Minnesota, which finished the regular season 5-7.

Kaliakmanis certainly has the athleticism to succeed at the FBS level, and we'll see if the reunion with former Gopher OC Kirk Ciarrocca can give his career the desired boost at Rutgers.

For those wondering, the Scarlet Knights and Gophers meet in Piscataway next season, a game that will take place on November 9th.
