Huskers trampled by Gophers

Nebraska struggled to get anything going in Minneapolis as Minnesota improved to 6-0 with a 34-7 win over the Huskers.

The Huskers went to the locker room trailing 14-0 at halftime, in sophomore quarterback Noah Vedral’s first career start. For the game, Vedral completed 14-of-23 passes for 135 yards, while also rushing for a team-high 49 yards. Vedral, who started in place of sophomore Adrian Martinez, came out of the game after leading Nebraska on 14-play, 80-yard touchdown drive in the fourth quarter.

Minnesota controlled the first half, pounding out 220 rushing yards while out-gaining Nebraska 257-159 and taking a 14-0 lead. The Golden Gophers then put the game out of reach with three third-quarter touchdowns.

When you’re losing one-on-one battles, it really doesn’t matter much what plays you dial up on offense, or what schemes you cook up on defense.


What the Gophers did wasn't complicated. They did nothing that surprised Nebraska's defense. They just simply pushed the Huskers around.


Hard to not feel like this one was a step in the wrong direction.

Hail Varsity

The home team played with hunger. The visitors, not so much.

Lincoln Journal Star

This is such a tough league to try to develop a tough-guy mentality if it’s not there.

Omaha World-Herald

Nebraska is three games better than it was a year ago at this point. That is certainly progress, but it will take a lot more toughness and focus to avoid a fate similar to 2018’s.

Daily Nebraskan

While the Gophers are exceeding expectations, the Huskers aren’t. Maybe that says something about those expectations.

Grand Island Independent

This wasn't Michigan or Ohio State. This was Minnesota. They physically dominated every phase of the game, and now Frost and the Huskers have to sit for two weeks and think about that.


The Gophers imposed their will with hard-nosed, physical football that broke Nebraska’s spirit.

Husker Mike

The team that couldn’t run the ball against teams like Georgia Southern, South Dakota State and Fresno State gashed Nebraska for 322 yards.
