  2020 BIG TEN AMECHE-DAYNE RUNNING BACK OF THE YEAR: Mohamed Ibrahim, Minnesota,...Ibrhaim was also named All-Big Ten First Team by both the coaches and the media. He was the media's lone unanimous player to be named All-Big Ten First Team. Ibrahim is one of 10 semifinalists for the Doak Walker Award, which is presented to the top running back in the country, and is the lone Big Ten back on the list.

Despite playing in only six games, Ibrahim leads the Big Ten in rushing attempts (175), rushing yards (925), rushing touchdowns (15), average rushing yards per game (154.2), all-purpose yards (1,028), scoring (90 points) and points per game (15.0). He has rushed for at least 100 yards in all six games this year and his current streak of seven straight games with at least 100 yards rushing is tied with Laurence Maroney for the most in school history. - Minnesota Football

  12/12/20 - Mohamed IbrahimrJr/2022, Minnesota, 5-09, 210 (DS#3 RB) + More +

  Mohamed Ibrahim ran for two touchdowns following Nebraska turnovers, and a Minnesota team missing nearly three dozen players to COVID-19 protocols or injuries left Memorial Stadium with a stunning 24-17 win on Saturday after being idle three weeks. Ibrahim scored on fourth-and-goal from the 1 to give Minnesota a 10-point lead early in the fourth quarter after Adrian Martinez fumbled at the Nebraska 39. Connor Culp's 30-yard field goal cut it to 24-17 with 4:42 left. The Gophers then called on Ibrahim to finish off the game, having him carry six straight times for 59 yards before they went into victory formation at the Nebraska 6. The Gophers (3-3, 3-3 Big Ten) had their last two games canceled because of a COVID-19 outbreak on the team, and most of their missing 33 players were in the conference's 21-day return to play protocol. It also was Minnesota's first game without star wide receiver Rashod Bateman, who opted out Nov. 25. Nebraska (2-5, 2-5), which beat Purdue on the road last week, hasn't won back-to-back Big Ten games since 2018. Ibrahim finished with 108 yards on 20 carries and Tanner Morgan was 17 of 30 for 181 yards. - Minnesota/AP College Football

  2020 DOAK WALKER AWARD SEMIFINALIST: Mo Ibrahim (Jr.), Minnesota,...Ibrahim is averaging 163.4 rushing yards per game, which ranks first in the nation for anyone who has played in at least five games. He ranks 17th in the nation in rushing yards (817) despite playing in only five games. Everyone above him (except Buffalo's Jaret Patterson) has played in at least eight games. Ibrahim ranks tied for sixth nationally in rushing touchdowns with 13. Despite playing in only five games, Mohamed Ibrahim leads the Big Ten in rushing attempts (155), rushing yards (817), rushing touchdowns (13) and scoring (78). The school single-season record for rushing touchdowns is 18 and was set by Gary Russell in 2005 (12 games played). - Minnesota Football

  12/06/20 - Jack GibbensrSr/2022, Minnesota, 6-3, 240 (DS#999 ILB) + More +

  The Gophers will gain some much-needed experience at linebacker in 2021. Jack Gibbens, a Bulverde, Texas, native, recently completed his senior season at FCS program Abilene Christian and entered the NCAA transfer portal back on Nov. 24. His former team went 1-5 this season with two canceled games. Gibbens, 6-4, 240 pounds, led Abilene Christian with 49 tackles, including 4.5 for a loss and two sacks in 2020. He also made an interception, forced two fumbles, recovered a fumble and made two quarterback pressures. Gibbens has played in nearly every game through his four-year career, including all 12 last season when he made 104 tackles. With the NCAA granting all athletes an extra year of eligibility because of COVID-19, Gibbens should be a scholarship grad transfer with plans to join the Gophers in January. He could help a young Gophers' defense that has struggled this year, averaging more than 456 allowed offensive yards per game. - Minneapolis Star Tribune

  11/27/20 - *Rashod BatemanJr/2021, Minnesota, 6-1, 210 (DS#4 WR) + More +

  Fleck said in a statement he fully supports Bateman, who had two years of eligibility left, pursuing his dream. "It was a joy to watch Rashod develop into an All-American receiver on the field and a strong, positive advocate for social change off of it," Fleck said. "He is one of the best to ever represent Minnesota." The Gophers first announced a one-day halt to practice Monday night before formally shutting down the team the next day. The team announced 15 positive cases, nine players and six staff, with even more presumed positives just awaiting confirmation results.

Returning for the Northwestern game Dec. 5 is in focus, though Wisconsin and Maryland, the other Big Ten teams that have experienced outbreaks, both needed two weeks to control their spread. Beyond Northwestern, just Nebraska on Dec. 12 and a to-be-determined ninth game on Dec. 19, slated as an East-division matchup based on the standings, remain for the Gophers. The potential for a bowl game is nebulous, considering the pandemic has affected the number of games and the eligibility requirements. Last season, Bateman caught 60 passes for 1,219 yards and 11 touchdowns as part of a fierce receiver tandem with Tyler Johnson, now of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But in the offseason, a bout with COVID-19 gave him similar symptoms to a bad flu, with the addition of losing his sense of taste and smell. But in the six weeks Bateman was declared for the 2021 NFL draft, living off-campus in a downtown Minneapolis condo, he realized just how much he missed his team. - Minneapolis Star Tribune

  11/25/20 - *Rashod BatemanJr/2021, Minnesota, 6-1, 210 (DS#4 WR) + More +

  Minnesota star wide receiver Rashod Bateman decided Wednesday to end his season early out of concern over COVID-19, the day after the Gophers canceled their game against Wisconsin due to a rise in cases within the program. Bateman, a widely projected first-round pick in the 2021 NFL draft who was the Big Ten Receiver of the Year award winner in 2019, made his announcement on Twitter.

Bateman had COVID-19 this summer and initially opted out of his junior season in August, shortly before the Big Ten shelved fall sports. When the conference enhanced COVID-19 protocols and relaunched the schedule, Bateman rejoined the Gophers and had his eligibility restored by the NCAA. Bateman had 60 receptions for 1,219 yards and 11 touchdowns in 13 games last season, helping Minnesota go 11-2 and finish 10th in the final Associated Press poll. Bateman had 36 catches for 472 yards and two touchdowns in five games for the Gophers (2-3) this year. Chris Autman-Bell is next on the team with 14 receptions for 315 yards and one score. - AP College Football
