Minnesota wrapped up their regular season on Saturday with a 23-13 upset of No. 14-ranked Wisconsin, improving their overall record to 8-4 and finishing in a three-way tie for second place in the Big Ten West. There does not seem to be any consensus among the prognosticators as to where the Gophers will end up bowling this winter, with Las Vegas, Nashville, Tampa, Phoenix, and even The Bronx on the table. So hold off on making any vacation plans until this weekend.
