Floyd of Rosedale: Gophers Answer With A Touchdown, Game Tied 7-7

The Minnesota Golden Gophers put together an emphatic answer to Iowa's first touchdown drive of the game, responding with one of their own and tying the battle for Floyd of Rosedale at seven just before halftime.

On the second play of the drive, quarterback MarQueis Gray dropped back and found freshman wide receiver Devin Crawford-Tufts wide open down the right side for a 61-yard gain, moving the Gophers into Iowa territory for the first time today at the 16-yard line. Gray and Donnell Kirkwood alternated rushes for a few plays after that to get the Gophers inside the Iowa 10-yard line, and on 3rd-and-goal from the 3, Gray found tight end Collin McGarry for a touchdown pass to tie the game at seven.

We're under a minute to play in the first half at TCF Bank Stadium, and the Minnesota Golden Gophers and the Iowa Hawkeyes are tied in the annual Floyd of Rosedale game, 7-7.
