Minnesota Raises Floyd

The Golden Gophers completely dominated the Iowa Hawkeyes in a 51-14 win, that allowed Floyd of Rosedale to extend his stay in Minneapolis. 1967 was the last time Minnesota held both the Little Brown Jug & Floyd in their trophy case. 1967 was also the last Big Ten title for Minnesota, and the last year that they had all three traveling trophies: the Jug, Floyd and Paul Bunyan’s Axe, in their possession.

The win over Iowa should help mentally, as the temps plummet across Minnesota in the next few days.

Let’s go Polar Vortex!
