Thursday, the University of Minnesota’s Golden Gophers football team capped off the 2022 season with a bowl victory.

Playing at Yankee Stadium in New York, Minnesota topped Syracuse 28-20 to finish the season 9-4.

Mohamed Ibrahim rushed for 71 yards on 16 carriers with a touchdown and became Minnesota’s all-time rushing leader in the win and Daniel Jackson hauled in a pair of TD passes. However, quarterback Athan Kaliakmanis had to be helped off the field due to injury and was replaced by senior Tanner Morgan, who completed 4 of 7 passes for 58 yards.

The Gophers are now 4-0 in bowl games since P.J. Fleck took over as head coach.
