MarQueis Gray Sets Mark With Second Straight 100-Yard Game

Minnesota Golden Gophers' quarterback MarQueis Gray has been a machine this afternoon against the Redhawks of Miami (Ohio) University. With approximately 12 minutes remaining in the football game, he has rushed the ball 20 times for 155 yards, and also generated 155 yards and a touchdown through the air.

The rushing yards are what we're the most interested in, however, as the Gophers Athletic Department has let us know via the magic of Twitter that Gray is the first Gophers' quarterback since Billy Cockerham in 1999 to rush for 100 or more yards in two consecutive games. Gray is also on the verge of setting the Gophers' single-game rushing yardage mark for a quarterback, which is currently held by Gopher legend Sandy Stephens. Stephens ran for 160 yards in a game against the Michigan Wolverines on October 28, 1961.

While Gray has had a great game thus far, he's going to have to pull out a little bit more out of the hat, from the looks of it. The Gophers currently lead the Redhawks 23-16 at TCF Bank Stadium as the fourth quarter winds down. The Gophers are looking for the first win of the Jerry Kill Era after an 0-2 start.
