Great Moments in Gopher Football: Did You Say Utes?

Throughout HATE WEEK, we'll be looking back at some of the memorable moments in Gopher football history.  Because all teams have moments of ineptitude, but few have so many widely available on Youtube.

September 8, 1990:

Minnesota opens their next Rose Bowl campaign against the Utah Utes in the Humpdome (a nickname based on the reference to Hubert Humphrey in its formal title, but destined to take on a whole new meaning when Iowa fans helped the Gophers close the place).  After staging a furious third-quarter comeback, Minnesota was tied with Utah and had driven to the Ute 12 yard line with only 8 ticks left on the clock.  The Gophers set up for the game-winning 29-yard field goal.  What happened next?  Magic.

You might think there is no sound in the movie, but that's actually with the volume turned up to 11.  It just turns out there was nobody in attendance.
