The Minnesota Golden Gophers actually accomplished something that they had been unable to do in the first half of their game against the Michigan Wolverines. . .they forced Michigan to punt.
However, on Michigan's second possession of the second half, they put things back to normal, driving for their sixth touchdown of the afternoon and extending their lead over Minnesota to 45-0.
It took the Wolverines just five plays to cover 54 yards on their most recent drive. They were assisted by a roughing the passer penalty that added more yardage to an 18-yard pass from Denard Robinson to Kevin Koger and put the Wolverines inside the Minnesota 10-yard line. Two plays later, Fitzgerald Toussaint took a handoff into the end zone from a yard out for another Michigan score.
With approximately eight minutes left in the third quarter of play, the Minnesota Golden Gophers trail the Michigan Wolverines by a score of 45-0 in the battle for the Little Brown Jug.
