Gophers accept bid to Meineke Car Care Bowl

| No Comments

Minnesota has accepted an invitation to play in the Meineke Car Care Bowl on Dec. 28, the Star Tribune and Pioneer Press reported Sunday.

This was the preferred bowl for Minnesota, according to the Star Tribune. ESPN will televise the game during prime time.

The Meineke takes the No. 6 team in the Big Ten and had the choice between Minnesota and Purdue, according to the Star Tribune. Minnesota beat Purdue this season, but Purdue had a better conference record and finished the season with three consecutive victories.

Purdue accepted an invitation to play in the Heart of Dallas Bowl on Jan. 1, according to both reports.

The Gophers will play a Big 12 team, potentially Baylor, according to the Pioneer Press.
