Gophers football team defeated in homecoming game

| No Comments

The Minnesota Golden Gophers football team lost their second consecutive game on Saturday, this time to division rival Northwestern, Star Tribune reports.
On the very first play of the game, Lamonte Edwards fumbled the kickoff, resulting in a turnover. On the very next play, Northwestern scored a touchdown.
The Gophers spent the rest of the game trying to catch up to the Wildcats, and managed to keep the game close until the very end. Unfortunately for Minnesota fans, the offense was never able to get into a consistent rhythm, and had several costly mistakes in the 21-13 defeat.
Senior quarterback MarQueis Gray made his return to the team following an ankle injury sustained in the third week of the season. He started at wide receiver and caught a pass, then replaced Max Shortell after Shortell was roughed up on a play in the first quarter, the Examiner reports.
Gray ran the ball effectively for the Gophers but it was not enough to lead them to victory. The team is now 4-2 and will travel to Wisconsin to play the Badgers next Saturday.
