Continued: Gophers, fans celebrate upset victory over No. 25 Nebraska

The Gophers ate up most of the remaining clock on their next drive, and Nelson capped it with another 1-yard touchdown run. At that point, the celebration was on.

It was the Gophers’ first victory over a ranked opponent since they knocked off No. 24 Iowa in 2010. But this was perhaps Minnesota’s biggest win since 2005, when it won at No. 21 Michigan 23-20, under Glen Mason.

Last year, the Gophers didn’t become bowl-eligible until Nov. 10, when they won at Illinois.

“I’ll tell you, you don’t sigh and you don’t celebrate,” Claeys said. “You get bowl-eligible in October, you reset your goals a heck of a lot higher. We told the kids, ‘We’ve got four Big Ten games left, so we’ve got a lot left we can accomplish.

“We’re playing very confident right now, and they have to learn now how to handle the success. … Last year, we got our sixth win later in the year, with two games left, and it was kind of a celebration and a letdown. That will not happen this year.”
