Gophers At Rebels Score Update: Teams Exchange Touchdowns, Go To Second OT

The Minnesota Golden Gophers and UNLV Rebels have exchanged touchdowns in the first overtime at Sam Boyd Stadium, and so they will go on to a second overtime tied at 20.

UNLV got the ball first, and the Tim Cornett show continued, as he carried the ball three times for 25 yards, the last carry being an 18-yard touchdown to give the Rebels a 20-13 lead.

The Gophers answered right back thanks to Marqueis Gray. Gray scrambled for three yards on Minnesota's first play, and a 15-yard late hit penalty moved the ball to the UNLV 10-yard line. Two plays later, Gray found John Rabe for a 10-yard touchdown pass, and the game was tied again at 20.

So, with that, we will move on to a second overtime with the teams tied at 20. This time, Minnesota will get the ball first and the Rebels will have to attempt to answer whatever Minnesota might do.
