The drive started with two big pass plays, a 19-yarder from Adam Weber to MarQueis Gray, followed by a 40-yarder from Weber to Da’Jon McKnight. When the drive looked like it was getting ready to stall, Gray took a snap in the Wild Gopher and picked up six yards on a third-and-four to convert. On the next play, Duane Bennett took a handoff from Weber and smashed it in from six yards out for the touchdown.
Eric Ellestad hit the extra point, and the Gophers have taken the lead back, 27-24, in the battle for the Floyd of Rosedale. We have 4:25 remaining at TCF Bank Stadium.
