Mohamed Ibrahim, Minnesota stifle Northwestern in 31-3 drubbing

Mohamed Ibrahim rushed for 178 yards and three touchdowns and Minnesota's defense continued its dominance as the Golden Gophers defeated Northwestern 31-3. 

Ibrahim, who carried the ball 36 times, extended his streak of consecutive 100-yard rushing games to 18, the longest in FBS since 2000. 

He also became the seventh player in Big Ten history with 50 career rushing touchdowns. 

Northwestern played four quarterbacks, a function of injury and attempt to generate offense.
