MINNEAPOLIS — In the final minutes of Minnesota's 34-23 shucking of the Huskers, about 15,000 Nebraska fans hoping to enjoy an easy win in TCF Bank Stadium grew quiet as the Gophers inexorably pushed toward a final touchdown.
But one NU fan — a woman dressed in black, including the head warmer and the nail polish — screamed support from the front row of the east end zone as the Huskers' defense, gas tank on empty, stood 20 yards away.
