Anyone catch the College Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas Tech against the Minnesota Golden Gophers? It was actually a great game, with Texas Tech trailing 31-24 until Seth Doege hit Eric Ward on a 35 yard touchdown strike with just over one minute remaining. Ryan Bustin stepped onto the field to nail the game winner with a 28-yard field goal just as time expired. Literally, the clock stuck 0:00 in the 4th quarter. The game ended with Texas Tech 34, Minnesota 31.
Our Minnesota head coach, Jerry Kill, put together a nearly flawless game plan, and had the Golden Gophers in a position to win it, however just came up short at the last second.
It was a great season, Gophers! Your fans are so proud of you for making it to The Meineke Car Care bowl game and leaving it all out on the field. So much passion, so much love for the game. We will see you next year, better than ever!
