Trickeration Helps Gophers Tie Game At 14

The Golden Gophers running game has been killing it in the second quarter thus far, and that helped them to claw back into a tie with Northwestern.

After a huge pass from Adam Weber to tight end Eric Lair that came as the result of play-action, Weber pitched the ball to Duane Bennett going right. Bennett then pulled up and lofted a pass for Lair into the end zone, and the big tight end brought it in for a score from eight yards out.

With 7:30 left in the first half of play, the Gophers and the Wildcats are tied at 14 at TCF Bank Stadium.
