Player Postgame: Le'Veon Bell and Andrew Maxwell

MINNEAPOLIS - Junior tailback Le'Veon Bell closed out the regular season with 1,648 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns after rushing for 266 yards and a touchdown on 35 carries in a 26-10 victory over Minnesota.

Junior quarterback Andrew Maxwell felt that Bell's performance may have been one of his best.

"It was the best game I think I have ever seen him play," said Maxwell. "He did everything that we asked of him. What we asked him to do was really carry the ball and pound the rock and take some time off the clock. He had the hot hand, and the offensive line was physically dominant up front. You've got to do what's working."

Bell averaged 7.6 yards per carry against the Golden Gophers. Minnesota entered the game fresh off an impressive performance by its run defense which held Nebraska's potent ground game to 133 rushing yards one week earlier.
