The Gophers football program said midweek that 15 players would be honored for Senior Day, and come Saturday, an important 16th player joined in at Huntington Bank Stadium.

Safety Tyler Nubin, who has another year of eligibility remaining for 2023, was added to the group.

Gophers coach P.J. Fleck encourages players on the fence about their future to take part, even if they eventually come back.

With Nubin having a stellar fourth season and appearing to have a bright future in the NFL, his inclusion on Saturday might portend the end of his Gophers career.

Besides Nubin, the Gophers honored Mo Ibrahim, John Michael Schmitz, Tanner Morgan, Jordan Howden, Mariano Sori-Marin, Chuck Filliaga, Thomas Rush, Terell Smith, Axel Ruschmeyer, Matthew Trickett, Clay Geary, Josh Aune, Preston Jelen, Sam Pickerign and Austin Sullivan.

Brrr

Saturday’s kickoff temperature was 17 degrees, which became the second-coldest temp for a collegiate game at Huntington Bank Stadium. With the wind, the “feels like temperature’ was around zero.

The coldest game remains the 15 degrees for the Ohio State game in 2014.

More Mo records

Ibrahim is breaking records every single week. On Saturday, he added two more.

In the first half Saturday, Ibrahim scored his 19th touchdown of the season, lifting him past Gary Russell for most rushing TDs in a season.

Ibrahim tallied his 24th 100-yard game, which set another program record. Darrell Thompson had 23.

In the fourth quarter, Ibrahim set the Huntington Bank Stadium record for rushing yards in a game.
