Minnesota Golden Gophers 27, Iowa Hawkeyes 24 - Gophers Force Huge Turnover

On the first play of Iowa’s latest drive, they handed the ball again to freshman Marcus Coker. Coker cut back and appeared to have a big lane to run through, but then got popped by Troy Stoudermire, and the ball flew out onto the TCF Bank Stadium turf.

After a scrum for the football, the referee stood up and signaled that the Gophers had recovered, and had first-and-ten from the Iowa 44-yard line.

With just about three minutes left in the football game, the Gophers are hanging on to a 27-24 lead.
