Gophers At Wolverines: The Beatdown Continues, Now 31-0

The Gophers have held the Wolverines to a field goal! The Gophers have held the Wolverines to a field goal!

Yes, it's not much, but at this point, any victory will be accepted by this team.

After Dan Orseske hit a 14-yard punt after the Gophers' latest three-and-out, the Wolverines started out on the Minnesota 37-yard line. A long TD run for the Wolverines was called back by a hold, but that was cancelled out by a pass interference penalty on Minnesota.

However, in a development that we haven't seen all day, the Gopher defense stiffened up a little bit, holding the Wolverines out of the end zone for the first time today. Michigan kicker Brendan Gibbons converted on a 25-yard field goal, and Michigan increased their lead over Minnesota to 31-0.

With time winding down in the first half, it's obvious that the Jug is staying in Ann Arbor this year. . .it's just a matter of what numbers get painted on the side. Right now, the Minnesota Golden Gophers trail the Michigan Wolverines, 31-0.
