SOURCE: Texas A&M is hiring Minnesota defensive backs coach Mo Linguist for the same position. TexAgs first reported the move. Linguist is a Dallas native who played at Baylor and has moved up the ranks quickly. Excellent recruiter who was at Mississippi State in 2016. Nice addition by Jimbo Fisher and Mike Elko.

Hornibrook, Badgers stay unbeaten with 31-0 win at Minnesota

Alex Hornibrook threw three touchdown passes without an interception for fifth-ranked Wisconsin, and the Badgers easily remained unbeaten by overwhelming rival Minnesota 31-0 on Saturday for their 14th straight victory over the Gophers.

Minnesota's scoreless streak extends to six quarters after Emmit Carpenter's missed field goal attempt at the end of the half. It has been total domination for Wisconsin, which leads in points (17-0), yards (262-46), first downs (12-2), plays (40-19) and possession time (20:50-9:10)

Golden Gophers recover Badgers' fumble (0:41)

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Jonathan Taylor's record-setting freshman season has been blighted a bit by a fumbling issue. The Wisconsin freshman now has five lost fumbles this season after absorbing a big hit from Minnesota linebacker Thomas Barber. Minnesota's offense is doing nothing today, but this is worth monitoring for the Big Ten title game.

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Minnesota's defense is up to the challenge so far, holding Wisconsin on the Badgers' first two possessions. The Badgers interestingly passed on third-and-short, and Alex Hornibrook made a dangerous throw into traffic. Hornibrook has thrown an interception in every Big Ten contest.
