The Golden Gopher Football team lost to the North Dakota State Bison on Saturday 27-21. It was a disappointing show for Gopher fans for sure. The HHH Metrodome was packed with 63,088 screaming football fans that saw the maroon and gold fall to 1-7 on the season. North Dakota State continued its unbeaten season, improving to 7-0.
Minnesota collected 307 yards of total offense to North Dakota State’s 585. Bison junior running Tyler Roehl was the star of the game, running for a school-record 263 yards on 22 carries. Adam Weber led the Gophers with 162 yards passing and one touchdown. The Golden Gopher defense was basically non existent and is definitely the worst in the league, perhaps the worst in Gopher history.
KEY POINT OF THE SEASON: Tim Brewster has his work cut out for him recruiting next year if he wants to live up to any of his promises that he made to the state of Minnesota and Gopher Nation.
