Minnesota Golden Gophers 3, Iowa Hawkeyes 0 - Tricky, Tricky Gophers

Apparently one possession wasn’t enough for the Gophers to start the game, and they appear to be serious about bringing the Floyd back to Minneapolis.

After getting the early field goal to go up 3-0, the Gophers perfectly executed an onside kick. Kicker Eric Ellestad put the ball on the ground, hid behind a couple of blockers, and recovered the ball after it had gone 10 yards.

The Gophers are driving again, as they’re into Iowa territory after the onside kick, and they lead the Hawkeyes 3-0 with about six and a half minutes remaining in the first quarter.
