Game Summaries: Week 12, Season 3 Battle for the Floyd of Rosedale #7 Iowa 17 @ #25 Minnesota 24 Huge game for both programs this season. Even bigger game for the Gophers as they have lost the last two years against the Iowa Hawkeyes. The Gophers were able to finally get over the hump notching a win. Speed killed and prevailed in this one. The Gopher receivers burned Hawkeye defenders left and right. Bad news for the state of Minnesota as Jonathan Pittman will be done for the season, out for 7 weeks. Duane Bennett will look to fill the role. The Gophers had a big advantage in the time of possession as they almost doubled Iowa's T.O.P. Another key stat that led to T.O.P. was the Gopher's ability to convert on third down winning that battle 8-11 to 3-8. A big accomplishment as well, The Minnesota defense held the Hawkeye offense in check to 172 yards while our offense managed to muster up 371 yards. To say that our next game is a huge one, is an understatement, as we face off against #11 Wisconsin Badgers.
