The Minnesota Golden Gophers scored 13 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to rally past the Beavers 30-23 in Minneapolis. Gopher running back Rodney Smith and quarterback Mitch Leidner both ran for two touchdowns and freshman defensive end Tai’Yon Devers (DEE-vers) forced two fumbles to help the cause. Leidner finished 13-of-26 for 130 yards through the air for Minnesota.
Leidner says they did make too many mistakes.
Oregon State quarterback Darell Garretson threw for 228 yards and three touchdowns. Ryan Nall led the Beavers’ ground attack, rushing for 71 yards on 13 carries. The Gophers host Indiana State a week from Saturday.
