Gophers Vs Wildcats Score Update: Minnesota Adds Field Goal To Get Within 21-10

The Minnesota Golden Gophers actually made the Northwestern Wildcats drive more than half the field on their most recent possession, and something good came out of it.

While Northwestern was driving, Dan Persa overthrew one of his receivers, and the ball wound up in the hands of Kim Royston for an interception that gave Minnesota the ball on their own 31-yard line. From there, the Gophers put together a decent drive behind the running of MarQueis Gray and Duane Bennett. Gray mixed in a nice pass to Brandon Green for 18 yards on a 3rd-and-7 that kept the drive going for Minnesota.

The drive eventually stalled, however, and the Gophers had to settle for a 28-yard Jordan Wettstein field goal to cut the Northwestern lead to 21-10.

We have a little more than six minutes remaining before halftime in Evanston, and the Minnesota Golden Gophers trail the Northwestern Wildcats by eleven points. Northwestern is driving again, however, as they are approaching midfield.
