This time, Minnesota was the foe, and while the Gophers aren’t exactly the class of the Big Ten, no other Michigan team has ever beaten Minnesota as badly as it did today. Vincent Smith scored a rushing touchdown, receiving touchdown, and threw a touchdown pass to lead Michigan to a 58-0 win, its first shutout since beating Notre Dame 38-0 in 2007, and its first shutout of a Big Ten opponent since a 20-0 victory over Penn State in 2001. #19 Michigan 58 – Minnesota 0 Final Stats 58 Final Score 0 5-0 Record 1-4 580 Total Yards 177 363 Net Rushing Yards 73 217 Net Passing Yards 104 32 First Downs 8 0 Turnovers 2 3-24 Penalties – Yards 9-74 2-75 Punts – Yards 10-363 36:22 Time of Possession 23:38 6-for-11 Third Down Conversions 0-for-11 0-for-0 Fourth Down Conversions 0-for-0 3-16 Sacks By – Yards 1-8 3-for-3 Field Goals...
