Minnesota's Brewster to open NASDAQ today

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

Tim Brewster helped Minnesota improve its record by six victories this season. Perhaps the Golden Gophers head coach can give the sagging economy a much needed jumpstart.

Brewster and athletic director Joel Maturi will participate in the opening bell ceremony at the NASDAQ stock exchange this morning in New York. The Insight Bowl set up the opportunity, which will feature Brewster, Maturi, Kansas head coach Mark Mangino and Kansas athletic director Lew Perkins.

Minnesota and Kansas meet Dec. 31 in the Insight Bowl.

Today's bell-ringing ceremony begins at 9:30 a.m. ET and can be viewed at www.nasdaq.com.
