Gophers Capitalize On Another Northwestern Turnover To Go Up By Eight

The Wildcats appeared to be driving to take a lead over the Gophers, but the Minnesota defense held firm, and Michael Carter intercepted a pass from Northwestern quarterback Dan Persa to give the Gophers the football at their own 11-yard line.

From there, the Gophers put together an impressive drive, moving the 89 yards down the field in 11 plays, and taking just over six minutes to do it. The drive concluded when Weber found big Eric Lair for the tight end’s second touchdown catch of the afternoon, this one from 25 yards out.

With eleven minutes remaining in the ball game, the Gophers lead the Wildcats by a score of 28-20.
