1 Gophers defeat Boilermakers 17-2 on Wed Dec 14, 2011 8:11 pm

The Minnesota Gophers improved to 5-0 (2-0) with a 17-2 victory over the Purdue Boilermakers. The Defense stepped up huge for the Gophers who struggled on offense and were flagged 5 times for holding. The Gophers opened the scoring with 2:33 left in the 2nd Q on a 25 yard FG by Hawthorne, this would be the only scoring until the 4th quarter when on 3rd and 1 Marqueis Gray connected with A Back Lamonte Edwards in the flat and he proceeded to run over the Boilermaker CB and take it in for a 25 yard TD to put the Gophers up 10-0. On the Boilermakers next drive CB M. Carter would step in front of a pass and took it 52 yards for a TD to put the Gophers up 17-0. Purdue would get on the board on a safety when CB Kyle Henderson picked off a pass near the goaline and his momentum would take him in to the endzone where he would be tackled.

Minnesota was lead by a dominating performance by the Defense who caused 7 turnovers (3 fumbles, 4 interceptions). ROLB K.Cooper was the player of the game with 5 tackles (4 solo), 1 sack and 2 forced fumbles. Next up the Gophers host the Oregon State Beavers.

I should have been hit with a penalty. Too many butterfingers on the field.

Yeah I got all the bounces with the fumbles and dropped passes, many of them on 3rd down.

Sounds like a good one. Congrats on the win Turner. From looking at the stats Davis had some success stopping the option but 7 turnovers will kill you
