Broncos At Gophers: Western Michigan Takes Advantage Of Minnesota Turnover

In a bit of a surprise, we've gotten a low-scoring game at TCF Bank Stadium this afternoon. Each team has made a big mistake deep in their own territory, and both teams have taken advantage of it with a touchdown.

MarQueis Gray converted an interception into a touchdown for the Minnesota Golden Gophers to give them a lead, but it was Gray's turnover that allowed the Western Michigan Broncos to take the lead back. After a penalty on a punt return started the Gophers at their own 5-yard line, Gray took a snap and ran over the left side, dragging defenders with him. Unfortunately, he put the ball on the turf, and Western Michigan recovered the fumble at the Minnesota 18-yard line.

The Broncos took advantage. After a third down conversion from Alex Carder to Jamie Wilson put the ball on the 6-yard line, Dareyon Chance took a handoff and went six yards untouched into the end zone for a Western Michigan touchdown and a 10-7 Broncos lead.
