CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) Mohamed Ibrahim rushed for 224 yards and four touchdowns and Tanner Morgan threw for one more and Minnesota beat depleted Illinois 41-14 on Saturday.
Ibrahim now has back-to-back games in which he has scored four rushing touchdowns for Minnesota (1-2, 1-2 Big Ten). It was his second consecutive 200-yard rushing game.
"I think he's one of the most special backs in America, and when you see him walking down the street, who would think he's a Big Ten running back?" said Minnesota coach P.J. Fleck. "He's not the biggest. He's not the strongest. He's not the fastest. But he's got incredible vision."
