Believe it or not, Minnesota has been to six bowls in the last 10 seasons. 

Nonconference wins vs. UNLV, New Mexico State, Western Illinois and San Jose State seem feasible. Two wins are still needed then in the Big Ten schedule, most likely via home games with Iowa and Penn State and a road test at Indiana. I think they win one of those games. I give them Iowa, but I also give them a loss in nonconference. 

Wins at Michigan Northwestern and Michigan State aren't happening, while Wisconsin and Nebraska are bound for big campaigns. 

I don't think they make six. NEXT!
