Insight Bowl 2009: Iowa State Cyclones vs. Minnesota Golden Gophers
The 2009 Insight Bowl will be a match between the Iowa State and Minnesota. The game will be played at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona on New Year’s Eve. Both of the teams became qualified to play on Insight Bowl for having the minimum 6-6 records.
It’s the first bowl game for Iowa State since 2005, while Minnesota played three times in four seasons. Minnesota failed to beat Kansas in 2008, 42-21.
The Cyclones’ key to winning the match this evening might be their running game with Alexander Robinson. He ran 1,000 yards for the first time in his career and finished 1,058 yards, enough to be on the top 3 in the Big 12. In a non-conference game, he bagged his career-high for running 152 yards against Kansas.
The match kicks-off at 6:00 p.m. ET.
UPDATE: The Cyclones claimed the 2009 Insight Bowl Thursday night with a 14-13 win over Minnesota at the Sun Devil Stadium. The Gophers made an unwanted bit of history by becoming the first three-time Insight Bowl loser.
