Well, the Gophers couldn’t have timed that much worse than they did.
A penalty for a block in the back negated what was a pretty good kickoff return for Duane Bennett following the last Penn State touchdown, and the Gophers were forced to start from their own 8-yard line. Two plays later, Adam Weber was running for his life in the end zone when he started to go down and just flipped the ball forward with nobody in maroon and gold in the immediate area.
Weber was flagged for intentional grounding, and the result of the play was a safety, extending their lead from 17 points to 19 at 33-14.
This one’s pretty much over, ladies and gentlemen.
