Michigan-Minnesota series history

Michigan and Minnesota play for the Little Brown Jug, one of two trophy series for the Wolverines.

The Wolverines defeated Minnesota in 2015 on a goal-line stand. Michigan’s defense stopped Minnesota quarterback Mitch Leidner just short of the goal line on a quarterback sneak on the final play of the game. Wolverines quarterback Wilton Speight replaced Jake Rudock with about five minutes left in third quarter; Rudock sustained an injury to his ribs. Speight connected with Jehu Chesson for a 12-yard touchdown pass with 4:57 left in the fourth quarter to give the Wolverines a 3-point lead.

Jabrill Peppers also scored his first collegiate touchdown in the 2015 win at Minnesota.

The Wolverines are 74-25-3 all-time against Minnesota. The rivalry began in 1892, but the jug became part of the rivalry in 1903, when Wolverines coach Fielding Yost purchased the vessel with a suspicion that locals might poison Michigan’s drinking water in Minneapolis.

Minnesota has won the Little Brown Jug just three times since 1986. The Golden Gophers’ last win against the Wolverines came in 2014, a 30-14 win in Ann Arbor, in which quarterback Shane Morris was put back into the game following a violent hit by Minnesota’s Theiren Cockran. In a release, the school said Morris sustained a “probable, mild concussion,” and it forced the Big Ten Conference to mandate a concussion protocol for football.

The Nov. 5 game will be the first meeting between Jim Harbaugh and P.J. Fleck, two of the Big Ten’s more charismatic personalities. Fleck is in his first season at the helm of the Golden Gophers.
