Northwestern beats Minnesota

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Northwestern escaped with its first Big Ten victory Saturday in Minnesota, a 29-28 win over the Golden Gophers at TCF Bank Stadium.

With 28 seconds to play Minnesota was driving on the Northwestern 40-yard line when Gophers' quarterback Adam Weber threw his second consecutive incomplete pass. On fourth down, NU's Ben Johnson intercepted Weber and the Golden Gophers' drive ended to preserve the win.

Northwestern kicker Stefan Demos missed an extra-point attempt to start the third quarter, but turned around and made a 27-yard field goal with 2:10 to play in the fourth quarter that gave NU a 29-28 lead.
