MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – It wasn’t the outcome the Husker football squad was looking for when they traveled to Minnesota on Saturday, as Nebraska fell to the Gophers 34-7.
The loss drops the Huskers to 4-3 on the season and 2-2 in the Big Ten.
Minnesota remained undefeated, improving to 6-0 on the year.
The game was decided between the tackles, as Minnesota dominated on the ground, rushing for 322 yards.
The game marked the first start for sophomore quarterback Noah Vedral, as the Wahoo native was called on to replace Adrian Martinez, who didn’t suit up due to a leg injury.
Also on the injury front, star freshman wide out Wandale Robinson was carted off the field in the second quarter after suffering what appeared to be an ankle injury. His status is currently unknown.
