Gophers At Rebels Update: Free Football In Las Vegas

The Minnesota Golden Gophers and UNLV Rebels are heading to overtime in the season opener, as the teams are tied at 13 at the end of regulation.

Looking at the stat sheet, you wouldn't think the Gophers would need overtime, having nearly twice as many yards as the Rebels (429 to 222), but numerous mistakes by Minnesota have allowed UNLV to stay in this one, and that's why we're looking at overtime.

There was a bit of excitement at the end of regulation, as a Gopher punt bounced off of the UNLV returner at around the 10-yard line and bounced into the end zone. None of the Gopher defenders could get on it, however, and so it went out of the end zone for a touchback. UNLV ran one play into the line, and settled for the overtime period.

After regulation, the UNLV Rebels and Minnesota Golden Gophers are tied at 13. The Gophers won the overtime coin toss and elected to go on defense first.
