FPI: Northwestern favored vs. Minnesota

The Wildcats are on a five-game winning streak and have never won six straight in the same season under Pat Fitzgerald. Their last six-game winning streak in a single season was in 1996, when Fitzgerald was a senior LB and helped lead Northwestern to a 9-3 record.

Surprising names lead Big Ten standouts

Sophomores Demry Croft of Minnesota and Mike Weber of Ohio State each got a nod after the best performances of their young careers. Iowa's Josh Jackson was an easy choice for the second straight week, this time after nabbing two pick-sixes, with Wisconsin's Leon Jacobs rounding out the group.

Croft, Minnesota run over Nebraska 54-21

Quarterback Demry Croft ran for 183 yards and three touchdowns, Rodney Smith added 134 yards rushing and a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, and Minnesota ran over Nebraska 54-21 on Saturday.

Minnesota beats Nebraska 54-21. Feel-good win for P.J. Fleck and the Gophers, who ran for 409 yards. It's fair now to wonder if Mike Riley will survive this season. Or next week. His fate as the Huskers' coach after this year seems to be sealed.

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

Minnesota's 119th-ranked offense is absolutely hammering Nebraska. The Gophers have not scored more than 27 points in Big Ten play, winning just once. They're up 27-7 on the Cornhuskers in the second quarter and dominating like Minnesota has done against a Power 5 foe this year only in Week 2 against Oregon State — which may have more in common with Nebraska than previously realized.

Gophers OT Greene paying price for U-M tussle

Minnesota offensive tackle Donnell Greene will receive some form of punishment from coach P.J. Fleck stemming from an "unacceptable" unsportsmanlike conduct call in the Gophers' game against Michigan last week.
