NEW YORK (AP) Mohamed Ibrahim rushed for 71 yards on 16 carries with a touchdown and became Minnesota's all-time rushing leader in the Golden Gophers' 28-20 win over Syracuse in the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium on Thursday.
Ibrahim, who missed virtually all of last year with a ruptured Achilles, closed out a solid career in dramatic fashion. After getting injured in the 2021 season opener against Ohio State, Ibrahim returned for a sixth season and finished his career with 4,668 yards and 53 rushing touchdowns in 40 games since joining the Golden Gophers as a two-star recruit from Baltimore.
"He's the ultimate overachiever, period," Minnesota coach P.J. Fleck said. "There's nothing you can tell him that he can't do and that goes back to his recruiting process. I bet you there's a lot of people that would like Mohamed Ibrahim on their team. There could be a lot of NFL teams that would like him on their team."
