HOUSTON (AP) - Minnesota will play in the Texas Bowl for the second year in a row when it faces Syracuse on Dec. 27.
The Gophers (8-4) improved by two wins in 2013 but have wound up in Houston yet again. Minnesota blew a 10-point lead in the final 1:10 and lost to Texas Tech 34-31 in last year's Texas Bowl.
Syracuse (6-6) finished 4-4 in its first season in the ACC and rallied past Boston College in the regular-season finale to earn bowl eligibility.
Minnesota is 3-1 against Syracuse, including a 17-10 win in 2012.
