Minnesota defeats Penn State for 8-2 record and Governor's Victory Bell


The whole winning streak has been unbelievable. It hardly seemed possible five weeks ago, when the Gophers limped into their first bye week after losses to Iowa and Michigan. Kill missed the Michigan game because of a seizure and began a leave of absence to focus on his epilepsy treatments.

But the Gophers regrouped and here they are, entering another bye week with a whole new outlook heading into the Nov. 23 game against Wisconsin.

First, they’ll have to get that Victory Bell fixed to display it in the trophy case. No one thought of that as the players were climbing over themselves, hoisting it toward an announced crowd of 48,123.

“I think we were more worried about keeping (the trophy) together, so we could celebrate with it first,” Maxx Williams said.

Someday, they’ll learn.
