Minnesota turns on the scoring to rout Nebraska

Minnesota rebounded from last week's loss to surge back in its fifth win of the season Saturday. The Gophers ran away with a victory against the Cornhuskers Saturday 54-21 in Minnesota’s second Big Ten win this year at TCF Bank Stadium. “We needed to start fast," said head coach P.J. Fleck. "It's a big game for both [Minnesota and Nebraska]. Whoever strikes first you can take the spirit out of somebody else, and we did that.”
