    Minnesota 31 Auburn 24

    Final great season for the Gophers. PJ Fleck has to be considered as one of the best young coaches in the country. Also congrats to Tanner Morgan very happy for him.

    On this day Minnesota show clearly just how badly Auburn was overrated.

    Wow, this is shocking upset. In what galaxy is Minny athletic enough to play with an SEC dog?

    Or perhaps Minnesota was underrated and just showed everyone how good they truly are.

    Good win for Minnesota first time winning 11 games since 1904. They benefited this year from one of the easiest schedules in the Big 10 they only played three Big 10 teams that had a winning record and were 1-2 in those games. Will be interested to see what they do next season.

    We had the privilege to be here in Tampa for the game. Gophers play together with heart and character. Tanner Morgan is legit.

    That was a fun game to watch.

    Minnesota came through with a lot of big plays to win.

    Congrats Tanner Morgan!

    Three top losses to top 10 teams, plus wins over Alabama and Oregon. No one behind them had a better resume'.

    Minny with 494 yards, doubles up Auburn with 232. That's tough to explain when Auburn was said to have an elite defense.

    Agreed.

    I thought Auburn would win this by a touchdown or two, but Minnesota was more than ready for the challenge. Enjoyed watching their offense work.
