Mental toughness propels Minnesota to historic win at Nebraska

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Ask Briean Boddy-Calhoun, and he'll tell you the biggest game yet in Minnesota's steady ascent wasn't won when he tore the ball out of Nebraska wideout De'Mornay Pierson-El's hands, and the heart out of an entire state of college football fanatics Saturday afternoon. It wasn't won when the Golden Gophers lost the FBS' No. 7 rusher to injury and rode two battering...

Buckeyes “Kill” Gophers (sort of) 31-24

With game time temperatures that would make this man smile, the #8 (CFB) Buckeyes (8-1, 5-0) took on the (CFB) #25 Golden Gophers (7-2, 4-1). Interestingly, to me at least, is that OSU is ranked #8/#7 in the AP poll and Coached Poll, while Minnesota, is not ranked in either poll. The Buckeyes overcame inclement conditions, penalties and three point-producing turnovers to edge Minnesota...

Northwestern, Minnesota at top of Big Ten?

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) It's not often for there to be a lot on the line when Northwestern and Minnesota meet on the football field. That there will be on Saturday even after shaky starts by both programs to this season is even more surprising. Northwestern lost the first two games of the season to Cal and Northern Illinois.

Minnesota tries to avoid Michigan hangover

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Little Brown Jug has been on a victory parade of sorts after Minnesota took it from Michigan for just the second time in the last 24 games of one of the longest running rivalries in college football.
