The Gopher football team kept their slim Bowl game hopes alive on Saturday as they got by Illinois 32-23 at TCF Bank Stadium. Minnesota closes out their regular season schedule next Saturday at home against Wisconsin in need of another win to become Bowl eligible. They are now 5-and-6 on the season. The win was the first official victory for head coach Tracy Claeys who took over mid-season for the now retired Jerry Kill.
