Gophers to battle for Little Brown Jug

By: Grant Donald

In 2005, Minnesota traveled to Ann Arbor, Mich., and upset the No. 21 Michigan Wolverines, hoisting the Little Brown Jug in front of more than 111,000 fans sporting maize and blue.

That was the last time the oldest trophy in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision has made the trip to stay in Minneapolis.

“We haven’t had the jug in a couple of years. I don’t even know what it looks like,” senior running back David Cobb said.

Minnesota has won the jug only once in the past 23 meetings between the two schools and has a 22-69-3 all-time record.
