Get the inside scoop on your favorite team:
Minneapolis and Lubbock are separated by more than 1,100 miles, but there is even greater distance in their offensive philosophies.
Minnesota has produced at least one 1,000-yard rusher in each of the last eight seasons, including Amir Pinnix this year. Texas Tech has gone eight seasons without one.
Texas Tech quarterback Graham Harrell has thrown for 4,110 yards thus far to extend a streak of seven seasons in which a Red Raider has passed for at least 3,000 yards. No Minnesota quarterback has ever thrown for more than 2,600 in a season.
However, the teams do have this in common: The Gophers and Red Raiders both have won three of their last four bowl games with the loss coming last season.
