12. MINNESOTA (5-6, 2-6)
Previous: 12. Last week: L 24-14 vs. Northwestern.
The Gophers have lost six of their past seven but can get into a bowl game with a win over Wisconsin this weekend. That’s easier said than done: UM has lost 13 straight against the Badgers. Redshirt freshman running back Mohamed Ibrahim (815 yards, six touchdowns) is a nice surprise for P.J. Fleck’s team and has a bright future.
