Derrell Johnson-Koulianos is good. He’s really good.
On the kickoff following the Gophers’ latest touchdown, Johnson-Koulianos took the kickoff at the 12-yard line and, as the announcers on the Big Ten Network said, he wouldn’t have been down if these teams were playing touch football. He started to the right, blasted through a hole, and went totally untouched for an 88-yard score.
In the last 2:49 worth of game time, we’ve seen three touchdowns. This game is turning into a shootout.
With 12:04 left before halftime, the Gophers lead the Hawkeyes 17-14.
