Minnesota Softball earns share of Big Ten title & sets records for wins!

A new consecutive wins record & a share of the B1G title!

UPDATE 5/6 3:30 CT: Minnesota has now won the Big Ten Title outright with a 14-1 victory over PSU!

—------------------------

The #4 ranked Minnesota Golden Gophers made history tonight with their dominant 11-1 win on the road at Penn State. The victory set a new program record for consecutive wins of 20 in a row, besting the record of 19 they set earlier this year. The win was also their 49th of the season, another program record. Best of all, the Gophers clinched at least a share of the Big Ten Title for the first time in 26 years!

Minnesota can win the B1G regular season title outright with a Michigan loss tomorrow (their Friday game vs. Rutgers was postponed due to rain) or with another Gophers win this weekend at Penn State. Tomorrow’s game will be broadcast live on BTN (starting at noon CT), don’t miss it!

This is truly been one of the most dominant Minnesota teams in recent memory and I’m looking forward to what they can do the rest of this weekend, as well as in the Big Ten and NCAA Tournaments!
