Gophers At Rebels Score Update: Minnesota Turns Interception Into 13-10 Lead

The Minnesota Golden Gophers' defense has done a very good job in the second half, holding the UNLV Rebels to less than 50 yards of total offense. Midway through the fourth quarter at Sam Boyd Stadium, they made a play that truly turned things around for Minnesota.

After tying the game at 10, the Gophers kicked off to UNLV, and had the Rebels facing a 3rd-and-4 from their own 30-yard line. UNLV quarterback Nick Sherry dropped back to pass, and a tipped ball resulted in an interception for Derrick Wells at the UNLV 25-yard line.

Marqueis Gray ran the ball for 13 yards down to the UNLV 12, but the offense stalled from there, and the Gophers had to settle for another Jordan Wettstein field goal, giving them the lead back at 13-10.

Each team now has two turnovers on the evening, with the Gophers having forced two Nick Sherry interceptions, while the Rebels have picked off Gray one time and recovered a Minnesota fumble.

With 5:40 left in the football game, the Minnesota Golden Gophers are back in the lead over the UNLV Rebels by a score of 13-10.
