Redhawks At Gophers: Miami (Ohio) Strikes Back To Make It 29-23

The Miami (Ohio) University Redhawks needed to make something happen to get back into the game against the Minnesota Golden Gophers, and they did just that after giving up a blocked punt for a touchdown by getting a touchdown of their own.

Redhawks' quarterback Zac Dysert went to work after the Redhawks retook possession of the ball, hitting Dawan Scott for a 22-yard gain on the first play of the drive. On a big 3rd-and-4, Dysert hit Nick Harwell for six yards to keep the drive alive for Miami (Ohio). After a 19-yard completion to Harwell put the Redhawks, Dysert then found Scott again for a 26-yard touchdown strike. Mason Krysinski converted the extra point, and the Golden Gophers' lead was back down to six at 29-23.

The Gophers have retaken possession and are currently at their own 42-yard line, looking at 2nd-and-2 with around seven minutes left in the game.

Can the Gophers get their first win of 2011? Keep it right here to find out!
