Gopher Women’s Volleyball host 1st and 2nd Round matches this weekend.
Gophers beat Florida State in basketball. Listen for Mike’s game report.
Jeremy Langford ran for 134 yards and a touchdown, and No. 11 Michigan State wrapped up an unbeaten regular season in Big Ten play with a 14-3 victory over Minnesota on Saturday. The Spartans (11-1, 8-0) finished a perfect Big Ten regular season for only the third time.
Chatfield’s defense came up big when it mattered most. A group of Gophers stopped Austin Buysse just shy of the goal line on the opening play of the fourth quarter and Chatfield went on to beat Minneota/Lincoln HI 17-7 Friday in the Class 2A Championship game at the Prep Bowl.
Mark Dantonio is ready to fight for Michigan State. When asked about having to campaign for No. 11 Michigan State (10-1, 7-0 Big Ten) to earn a BCS berth if they don’t reach the Rose Bowl by beating No. 3 Ohio State on Dec. 7, Dantonio talked about a 3-1 record in his team’s last four games against Wisconsin and a one-point loss to OSU last year. That is the closest scare the Buckeyes have had in two unbeaten seasons.
Elliott Eliason had 11 points, 11 rebounds and a career-high seven blocks to lead Minnesota to an easy 79-57 victory over Wofford on Thursday.
15 degrees for the kickoff of the game……are the Gophers ready?
These are the kind of games Minnesota can learn a lot from.
In the midst of their longest winning streak in two seasons, defensive lineman Beau Allen and linebacker Chris Borland admit there hasn’t been one moment that has defined the recent dominance of the Badgers’ senior-laden defense. Basically all it took was a little time for all the pieces to come together.
What’s next for the Vikings?
Jerry Kill pushed his way through the jumping, swaying and shouting mass of players circled in the Minnesota locker room, finding space in the middle of the crowd so he could get down with some dance moves of his own.
Minnesota basketball coach Richard Pitino has filled out his first recruiting class.
Minnesota’s Andre Hollins is fast becoming one of the best players in the Big Ten.
Thanks to a four-game win streak, the Gopher football team cracked the national rankings, as Minnesota is now slated No. 25 in the Coaches Poll. The last time the Gophers rattled off four-straight Big Ten victories was 1973, and after Saturday’s 24-10 victory over Penn State, the program has finally caught the attention of the national landscape.
Newcomer Joey King scored 20 points and Andre Hollins added 18 to lead Minnesota over Lehigh 81-62 on Friday night, giving Richard Pitino his first victory as the Gophers’ head coach.
