Minnesota 28, South Dakota State 21

MINNEAPOLIS - Mohamed Ibrahim plunged up the middle for a 1-yard touchdown run with 5:39 remaining and the Minnesota Gophers avoided an upset with a 28-21 win at home against FCS No. 3 South Dakota State.

Winston DeLattiboudere recovered a fumbled exchange between South Dakota State quarterback J'Bore Gibbs and running back Pierre Strong with the Jackrabbits holding a 21-20 lead in the fourth quarter. Minnesota capped a five-play, 34-yard drive with Ibrahim's touchdown to pull ahead and extend the nation's longest winning streak of nonconference games at 16 in a row.

Tanner Morgan was 13-of-18 passing for 176 yards, one touchdown and one interception for the Gophers, who also narrowly escaped with a 16-13 win over South Dakota State in 2009. Rashod Bateman had five catches for 132 yards, including a one-handed, 42-yard touchdown pass from Morgan in the first half.

In his first start for the Jackrabbits in replacing Taryn Christion, the Missouri Valley Football Conference's all-time leading passer, Gibbs was 13 of 26 for 193 yards passing and a touchdown and he added another touchdown rushing. But the redshirt freshman threw an interception that was returned 43 yards for a touchdown by Chris Williamson.
