Minnesota Golden Gophers 10, Iowa Hawkeyes 0 - Gophers Take Advantage Of The Onside Kick

The Gophers have, apparently, waited until the last week of the year to put together their best game. The game has been going for nine minutes and 16 seconds, the Iowa offense has yet to be on the field, and it’s starting to show.

Minnesota took the onside kick they recovered and matriculated it down the field once again, showing the same good combination of passing and running they showed on their first drive. However, this one got cashed in for seven points, as MarQueis Gray took a shotgun snap out of the Wild Gopher on third-and-1, took it around the right side, and raced into the end zone from 14 yards out.

With 5:44 left in the first quarter, the Gophers lead the battle for the Floyd of Rosedale, 10-0.
