MINNEAPOLIS — Tanner Morgan threw for 209 yards and two touchdowns and Bryce Williams rushed for 127 yards and another score as Minnesota defeated Nebraska 30-23.

The Gophers dominated the first half, taking a 21-9 lead behind near-perfect passing from Morgan. But Nebraska flipped the script in the second half, forcing two interceptions to get back into the game. 

However, a number of missed opportunities prevented the Huskers from taking the lead and allowed Minnesota to hang on.
