FORT WORTH, TX. -- The Gophers ran into a buzz saw called the TCU Horned Frogs Saturday afternoon, losing 30-7.

The Gophers were unable to crack the scoreboard until the fourth quarter when they were down by 30 points.

Minnesota was ineffective in all phases for much of the game, most condemning was the lack of a running game - the Gophers averaged only 2.5 yards per carry.

Gophers sophomore quarterback Mitch Leidner struggled with the fast and physical TCU defense, throwing three interceptions before being relieved by freshman Chris Streveler.

Streveler fared fairly well, throwing a touchdown pass to tight end Maxx Williams in garbage time.

The loss leaves the Gophers at 2-1 on the season.

Minnesota takes on San Jose State at TCF Bank Stadium next Saturday.
