I read that one should get 170 if applying to math grad schools since the general math sections are so easy. I screwed up two geometry problems in the first section, which messed with my score. Is 165 good enough for programs ranked between 20 and 50? I'm not looking at top 20, other than UMinn.

The only time when verbal/writing could count, beyond a first cut, is when a school awards fellowships that are discipline-independent, in which case the general GRE counts alongside GPA and research experience. Again, V168-Q165 is just fine for that sort of stuff at not-top-20 math schools that are still in range with a 50-60%ile MGRE.
Plus, I am sure that you checked what mathematics you wish to do before deciding that UMinn is the only top-20 school you'd apply to.
