Gophers Break into Top 25

by Paul Cordes

Some weekends, its good to just sit at home. The Gophers certainly picked a good weekend to do just that as they took advantage of some losses of Top 25 teams Saturday. The Gophers are ranked No. 25 in both the A.P. and USA Today polls and are sitting at No. 24 in BCS Stadings. This is the first time since October 15, 2005 that Minnesota has been ranked and makes for a very interesting Minnesota v. Northwestern game in a couple of weeks. Not quite sure what is going on right now. Wisconsin 0-4 in the conference. Michigan losing to Toledo. Minnesota versus Northwestern has the chance to be a Top-25 matchup…what?
