Minnesota Gophers - Wisconsin Badgers Recap

Gopher football player While the last week has been a blow out for Minnesota Professional Sports, I can not say quite the same for My Beloved Golden Gophers Football Team...

In a heartbreaking game last week, the Golden Gophers lost to the Wisconsin Badgers 31-28. But before you go and think that I'm mad or upset with my boys (Eric, I could never be mad at you) I would just like to say they played a hell of a game in a packed TCF Bank Stadium.

While the team did not win the game, several members of the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers roster had a great game...

1) Eric Decker- set a U of M record after catching his 8th ball of the game, putting his career receiving yards now at 3,000 (the former record was 2,989)

2)Marcus Shreles made a U of M record fumble recovery for 88 yards

3)Duane Benetter made a 1 yard rushing touchdown that was the 10th of his career and brought the Gophers to the 28-31 mark

4) Adam Weber collected his 6th Touch Down Pass, having at least one in every game of the season now

5) Lee Campbell hit his career high of 13 tackles in one game

Lets Go Gophers!
