Minnesota shut down by No. 11 Michigan State, 14-3
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) It's been quite a season for coach Jerry Kill's Minnesota team, but the Golden Gophers showed these last couple weeks that they're still a step behind the top teams in the Big Ten.
Jeremy Langford ran for 134 yards and a touchdown, and No. 11 Michigan State wrapped up an unbeaten regular season in Big Ten play with a 14-3 victory over Minnesota on Saturday. The Gophers lost to Wisconsin 20-7 the previous weekend. They didn't score an offensive touchdown against the Badgers or the Spartans.
"They're both physical football teams and they're both very good football teams," Kill said. "I've got a great deal of respect for both."
