. . MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Liam Robbins had 18 points, nine rebounds and three blocks, and led a choking attempt from No.. 21 Minnesota in defense of No.. 17 Michigan State 81-56 on Monday night. Marcus Carr scored 19 points, handing out five assists for the Gophers (9-1, 2-1 Big Ten), who never left the sputtering Spartans behind and kept them at 25. 7% shoot (18 for 70) while beating 52-36. Off the bench for the first time this season, Aaron Henry had 11 points and three assists, both meager team highs, as the Spartans (6-3, 0-3) made their first 0-3 start in Big Ten 19 Years. Minnesota, the then no. 4 Iowa have faced and defeated consecutive opponents in the Associated Press poll on Friday for the first time since beating Michigan State and Purdue in the 2010 Big Ten tournament. The Gophers have five more games in a row against teams that are currently in the AP Top 25. Robbins, the 7-foot transfer from Drake, held up against Iowa star Luka Garza on Friday with 18 points, five rebounds and four blocks, finding more room to be 3-inch clear of Joey Hauser of Michigan to strip. Robbins hit a 3-pointer on the opening possession, mixed in a handful of successful soft hooks, and showed Both Gach his passing ability with a nifty high-low feed for a layup and a three-point play after a foul on Hauser gave the Gophers a 46-21 lead. Brandon Johnson, who made eight of nine 3-pointers against the Hawkeyes to fuel the 102-95 win in extra time, had nine points and seven rebounds. His outside shot went cold along with most of his teammates as the Gophers only shot 6 for 25 from 3 point range, but they did almost everything else well, with the guards jumping for long rebounds and charging for loose balls. The Spartans missed one. . .

. . The weekend Thanksgiving football festival is missing some of the dishes that have become mainstays. The pandemic's changed schedules and delayed seasons have taken off the table a number of rivalry games that have become a staple of the last weekend of November, including the Michigan-Ohio state and all of the state matchups from ACC and SEC schools like Clemson-South Carolina. The Apple Cup between Washington and Washington State is canceled. The same goes for the longstanding rivalry between Minnesota and Wisconsin for Paul Bunyan's ax. It is the first time since 1906 that the Gophers and Badgers have stopped playing. The three-day college football weekend is still pretty rife, with the Iron Bowl between No.. 22 Auburn and No.. 1 Alabama as the main event on Saturday and two games corresponding to ranked teams on Friday with an impact on playoffs and conference titles. No. 2 Notre Dame (CFP No.. 2) plays at No.. 25 North Carolina in a game that could destroy the Atlantic Coast Conference's hopes of getting two teams into the College Football Playoffs. In the Big 12, No.. 15 Iowa State is facing No.. 20 Texas. The Cyclones get a place in the conference title game with a win. A Longhorn win complicates matters and leaves all competitors with at least two league losses on the course and head-to-head tiebreakers across the field. The soccer feeding frenzy might not have everything you want, but there is still plenty to choose from this weekend. The choice: FRIDAY No.. 2 Notre Dame (minus 4) at No.. 25 North Carolina A couple of heavy casualties hit the tar heels long to make it to the ACC title game, but QB Sam Howell and his crew have a huge offense . . . NORTH CAROLINA 35-31. No. 15 Iowa State (plus 1 1/2) at No.. 20 Texas Cyclones are 3-17 against the Longhorns and will try. . .
