Gophers on the Wrong Side of the Scoreboard Fall 42-13
MICHIGAN — The University of Minnesota Gophers couldn’t get anything going against Michigan in the second half which led to their 42-13 defeat.
However, before the football team took the field they already had a loss. Head Coach Jerry Kill missed the game due to a seizure he suffered that morning.
The team was able to hold their own in the first quarter ending things on a 7-7 tie, thanks to a touchdown pass from Mitch Leider to Maxx Williams.
Michigan would score three more times before half leading 28-10.
In the second half Minnesota was held to just a field goal while Michigan scored twice to bring us to our final score.
Leider was 14/21 with 169 yards through the air on the day, and one touchdown.
The loss brings Minnesota to 4-2 overall and 0-2 in the Big Ten. Minnesota will have next week off and resume play on October 19th against Northwestern.
