A big play by the Minnesota Golden Gophers' defense was the catalyst for the team increasing their lead over the New Hampshire Wildcats even further, and it appears as though the rout might actually be on at TCF Bank Stadium.
New Hampshire faced a third-and-nine from their own 26-yard line. Defensive end D.L. Wilhite blew past the New Hampshire offensive line and forced a fumble from New Hampshire quarterback Andy Vailas. The fumble was recovered by Michael Amaefula, and the Gophers were able to set up shop at the New Hampshire 18-yard line.
After a couple of carries from Donnell Kirkwood, the Gophers faced a third-and-three from the New Hampshire 11. Gray handled business himself, taking the snap and rambling the 11 yards to the end zone for a 30-7 Minnesota lead.
With two touchdown passes and two touchdown runs, Gray has played a role in all four Minnesota touchdowns on the afternoon. He's really putting together a nice performance.
With about four minutes left before halftime in the home opener, the Minnesota Golden Gophers are blowing out the New Hampshire Wildcats, 30-7.
