The No. 14 Gophers have lost two of their last three games, and dropped their Big Ten road opener, 78-68 at Nebraska.

Glynn Watson Jr. led the Cornhuskers with 29 points, while Nate Mason paced the Gophers with 20 points. The Gophers got only five points from their bench, as depth remains a concern.
