Gophers would be solid contenders in the MAC West.— Mike McFeely (@MikeMcFeelyWDAY) December 29, 2015
This one was worthy of a blog post. Congrats to the Gophers for their win in tonight's Quick Lane Bowl game. With the win, the Gophers ended a seven-game losing streak in bowl games. Minnesota ends the season 6-7.
Per the Gophers game notes: Minnesota is 6-11 all-time in bowl games but has lost its last seven bowl games (five by four points or less). Minnesota's last win in a bowl game was a 20-16 victory against Alabama in the 2004 Music City Bowl where both Marion Barber III and Laurence Maroney rushed for more than 100 yards.
