Music City Bowl

Minnesota - 20
Alabama - 16

This article explains the Gopher domination.

Minnesota (7-5) turned the ball over on its first three possessions, committed 11 penalties for 84 yards, dropped two touchdown passes and missed a 31-yard field-goal attempt that would have given it a two-score margin late in the fourth quarter.

Barber and Maroney combined for 292 yards rushing against a defense that held the vaunted rushing combo of Cadilac Williams and Ronnie Brown in check earlier in that 2004 season.

Fast forward to the 2009-10 season and the Gophers are in essentially the same rut while Alabama is favored to win the BCS Title tonight.
