Gophers struggle to move the chains at NU

The final score wasn't indicative of how one-sided Saturday's game between the Minnesota Golden Gophers and Nebraska Cornhuskers really was. The Gophers added two garbage-time touchdowns in the fourth quarter after the game was plenty out of hand to make it a 38-14 final. Minnesota fell to 6-5 on the year in what was yet another lopsided Big Ten loss. Here are five things...
