Gophers fall at home to NDSU

Minnesota lost 27-21 Saturday to Division 1-AA North Dakota State in front of a crowd of more than 63,000 at the Metrodome. The result keeps the Bison undefeated at 7-0 and dropped the Gophers record to 1-7, officially eliminating them from bowl contention.

NDSU’s Tyler Roehl rushed for a school-record 263 yards on the Gophers.

“We just weren’t good enough,? Gophers head coach Tim Brewster said following the loss, according to the Star Tribune.

The Bison made up for a 10-9 defeat one year ago at the Metrodome, a game dominated statistically by NDSU.

NDSU did the same this year, piling up more than 270 more offensive yards than Minnesota.

“I think this is probably the worst of our losses, just morale-wise," Gophers quarterback Adam Weber said, according to the Associated Press.

Minnesota will visit Michigan (5-2) next weekend.
