Waking up this Sunday morning it’s only natural to think back to yesterday and try and decide whether you dreamed that the Minnesota Golden Gophers did in fact upset #4 Penn State Nittany Lions at TCF Bank Stadium. In case you needed that last little pinch to prove to you that it did in fact happen and it was no a dream, here’s a Sunday morning nugz recapping all of the great pieces that have come out in the last 18ish hours recapping Minnesota’s win that put them in a place that hasn’t been achieved in oh...just 115 years.
