The game started off with a bang for the Gophers.

Minnesota offense wasted no time taking advantage of the Winfield Jr. interception. "You guy have seen the things he can do with the ball when he gets it in his hands".

It's still possible, but less likely because of what would have to happen - a combination of Penn State winning out, Minnesota finishing undefeated, and/or Ohio State finishing undefeated or with one loss. The order fluctuates from week to week based on new information. That fumble led to an LSU field goal and an early 10-0 lead for the Tigers.

"I knew they were going to come back, " he said.

"Everyone's obviously upset. We didn't want to lose that game", left guard Steven Gonzalez said.

Morgan, once again, took advantage of the Penn State turnover. The senior went 18-for-20 for 252 yards and three touchdowns.

He put together a nearly-perfect first half, failing to throw an incompletion until a missed defensive holding call lead to his first miss of the game late in the 2nd quarter. Scored two touchdowns in the final 26 seconds of the first half in a pivotal flurry that threatened to be overshadowed by the second half drama. The receiver seven catches for 119 yards and the tight end seven grabs for 101 yards. The Tigers had 309 total yards, compared with Alabama's 196, and the Crimson Tide had two turnovers and six penalties for 38 yards in the opening 30 minutes.

The progress made by Minnesota in coach P.J. Fleck's third season had been met by natural skepticism outside the long-languishing program, with even the most ardent fans in full prove-it mode for this game of unbeaten teams against Penn State. The Nittany Lions are 8-0 for the first time since 2008. Would the Big Ten's second best team be better than the Pac-12 champ? That was also the second most receiving yards in school history.

Clifford, who went 23 for 43 for 340 yards and one score, connected with Jahan Dotson for 49 yards to get Penn State to the 11. "I was really happy with the way we responded".

Another possibility would be if Ohio State and Minnesota were both undefeated in the Big Ten title game, and the committee considered both the victor and the runner-up.
