The skinny: Minnesota took a 3-0 lead at the Horseshoe, and then proceeded to get rolled by the Buckeyes despite Maurice Clarett sidelined with a shoulder stinger. He would rebound to score the game-winning TD in the national championship game vs. Miami.
Won: at Illinois, vs. Indiana, vs. Wisconsin
No. 4: Lost 40-22 at No. 20 Iowa
The skinny: In a forgettable game, Iowa led 40-6 before Thomas Tapeh cashed in on a pair of meaningless touchdowns late. The Gophers scored on only three of its six trips inside the red zone.
Won: vs. Indiana, at Michigan State, vs. Iowa
No. 4: Lost 45-31 vs. Purdue*^
The skinny: In the Gophers first conference game following the Insight Bowl meltdown, Desmond Tardy returned the opening kick 95 yards for a Boilermakers touchdown at the Metrodome. Purdue allowed Minnesota 469 yards of offense but the Gophers fumbled three times.
2008 (Tim Brewster)
Won: vs. Indiana, at Illinois, at Purdue
No. 4: Lost 24-17 vs. Northwestern
The skinny: A Homecoming nightmare. Tie game, 17-17, and the Gophers driving. Out of a timeout, Adam Weber was picked off by Brendan Smith, who returned it 48 yards for the winning score with just 12 seconds left to stun the crowd of 54,000.
