The Gophers delivered a true back breaker today as well. Down 17-0, MSU took the opening drive of the second half down to the Gophers 5 only to have Minnesota force a fumble and recover on the 10. Then the Gophs methodically drove 90 yards for a TD and a 24-0 lead. State was done. Dagger delivered. Next series a Gopher DE sniffed out the screen and picked off the pass inside the State 30. The Gophers scored again and the dirt was shoveled into the MSU grave.
Yes, The way the third quarter played out was perfect. MSU takes the ball on the kickoff, looks like they got their shit together at half time, drives, eats some clock, then ultimately doesn’t score. Gophers immediately eat more clock…and score. And that’s basically the whole quarter. Had to be very demoralizing for MSU.
