Minnesota Golden Gophers 20, Iowa Hawkeyes 14 - Gophers Add To The Lead

The Gophers are getting plenty of traction against a stalwart Iowa defense, but have had to settle for field goals a couple times rather than touchdowns.

Adam Weber appeared to have DaJon McKnight open on a third down in the red zone on this most recent drive, but the pass fell harmlessly to the turf. So, the Gophers had to settle for a 35-yard Eric Ellestad field goal instead.

With 5:35 left before halftime, the Gophers now lead the Hawkeyes 20-14.
