2012 Meineke Car Care Bowl: Minnesota Golden Gophers vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders

The Golden Gophers and the Red Raiders face off in the Meineke Car Care Bowl.

Minnesota and Texas Tech come into this game with similar records, but that means nothing as the Gophers were only able to muster 2 wins in a really weak Big 10, while the Red Raiders picked up some big wins in a very tough Big 12 schedule. Unless the Big 10 isn't as bad as they have looked all season, the conference will struggle to win any Bowl games, starting with this one.
