Minnesota Golden Gophers 20, Iowa Hawkeyes 17 - Gophers With A Big Turnover

The Gophers appeared to have been putting something together on offense, as they had driven into Iowa territory at the 36-yard line after a nice run by DeLeon Eskridge. However, on the next play, Eskridge was stripped of the ball by an Iowa defender, and the Hawkeyes recovered.

Now Iowa looks to be moving the football, as Ricky Stanzi has hit Derrell Johnson-Koulianos with a pass into Gopher territory as the third quarter comes to a close.

One quarter left to go in the battle for the Floyd of Rosedale, and the Gophers are still clinging to a 20-17 lead at TCF Bank Stadium.
