BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Ky Thomas had a career-high two touchdown runs, Tanner Morgan threw for two more and Minnesota used two TDs in the final 46 seconds of the first half to pull away from Indiana 35-14.

The Golden Gophers snapped a two-game losing streak. The Hoosiers lost their seventh straight and finished with their first winless home season in conference play since 2015. 

Indiana jumped to a 7-0 lead but never recovered after an interception in the final minute of the first half allowed Minnesota to take a 21-7 edge.
