Northwestern leads Minnesota in second half

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

What the heck happened in the second quarter?

After the Wildcats scored on their first three possessions of the game and built a 21-7 lead over Minnesota Saturday at Ryan Field, NU seemed to stall in the second quarter and only controlled the clock for 5:50 compared to 8:40 in the first quarter.

A 28-yard field goal by Golden Gophers kicker Jordan Wettstein cut the Wildcats' lead to 21-10 going into halftime.

On a side note for Minnesota, running back Duane Bennett eclipsed the 2,000-yard rushing mark in the second quarter. He needed only 45 yards to crack the 2,000 mark and finished the first half with 78.
