Final: Northwestern 24, Minnesota 17
Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg
MINNEAPOLIS -- Northwestern needed a turnover to win. Minnesota doesn't commit turnovers.
A problem? No doubt. But the Wildcats came up big when it counted. Cornerback David Oredugba tipped an Adam Weber pass and safety Brendan Smith picked it off. Smith weaved 48 yards to the end zone with 12 seconds remaining and Northwestern stunned No. 17 Minnesota on Homecoming. Weber had been flat-out tremendous until the interception. Coach Tim Brewster will have to answer questions about his decisions in the final minute.What a game. I'll be back later with more updates.
