A historic season for the Gopher football team has been over for nearly two weeks, but it can finally be put to bed and cemented in history with a final top-10 ranking.
After LSU's win over Clemson in the national title game Monday night, the final Associated Press Top-25 Poll was released Tuesday morning and the Gophers are ranked No. 10 in the country.
- LSU (15-0)
- Clemson (14-1)
- Ohio State (13-1)
- Georgia (12-2)
- Oregon (12-2)
- Florida (11-2)
- Oklahoma (12-2)
- Alabama (11-2)
- Penn State (11-2)
- Minnesota (11-2)
The No. 10 ranking is the highest final poll position for the Gophers since they finished 10th in the 1962 AP Top-25 Poll. Even more incredible is that this is the first season since 2003 that Minnesota is even included in the final top-25 poll, and only the third time since 1962.
Other Big Ten teams in the top 25: Wisconsin (11th), Iowa (15th), Michigan (18th)
The Gophers open the 2020 season Sept. 3 against Florida Atlantic.
