Minnesota's Passing Offense and QB Mitch Leidner Improving at a Critical Time

By Athlon Sports, 8 months 6 hours ago
It goes without saying that Minnesota’s offense starts with running the football. David Cobb has already rushed for 1,200 yards this season and leads the team with eight rushing touchdowns. The Minnesota rushing attack has carried the Gophers to a 7-2 record heading into mid-November. It has been needed because the Minnesota passing game has struggled to take flight this season.

By David Fox, 9 months 3 weeks ago
Week 3 offered only one game between two ranked teams, so the notion of Heisman moments was in short supply this week. There was one great play by the current frontrunner for the award, but that play came against Wyoming.
