Wildcats At Gophers: MarQueis Gray Finds The End Zone

It looks like MarQueis Gray has gotten over his injuries just fine, thank you.

On the Gophers' second possession of the afternoon, the returning Gray got to see quite a bit of time at quarterback due to an injury to Max Shortell. Gray moved the Gophers into Northwestern territory in a drive that went from the end of the first quarter to the start of the second quarter, completing three of his four pass attempts for 29 yards and getting the team deep into Northwestern territory.

On the first play of the second quarter, Gray took the snap from center, faked a handoff, and kept the ball on a running play. He weaved his way through the Northwestern defense, and eventually found himself in the end zone for a 25-yard touchdown run. Jordan Wettstein's extra point made the score 14-10.

No word on exactly what the injury to Max Shortell is or how long he might be out of the game for. With Gray dealing with injuries of his own, we might have to keep an eye on freshman Philip Nelson if Gray should happen to get banged up again.

The second quarter is just barely underway at TCF Bank Stadium, and the Minnesota Golden Gophers trail the Northwestern Wildcats by a score of 14-10.
