Gophers At Wolverines: Minnesota Trails At Halftime, 38-0

Even when the Minnesota Golden Gophers get some positive momentum going, they do something to shoot themselves in the foot.

The Gophers put together their best offensive drive of the afternoon, garnering two first downs in the same drive for the first time today and getting close to the midfield stripe, but a fumble by Brandon Green gave the ball back to Michigan. They wasted little time in converting for another touchdown, and we go into halftime at the Big House with the Gophers trailing the Wolverines in the battle for the Little Brown Jug, 38-0.

Michigan took just 2:22 to move 56 yards in ten plays, concluding the drive with an 18-yard touchdown pass from Denard Robinson to Kevin Koger.

At halftime, the Wolverines have 384 yards of total offense. The Golden Gophers have 69.

The Wolverines have just dominated this afternoon against the Golden Gophers, as a 38-0 halftime lead all but ensures that the Little Brown Jug will be staying in Ann Arbor. The Gophers, on the other hand, are well on their way towards potentially suffering one of the worst losses in school history.
