Solid start

Gophers quarterback Mitch Leidner played in his first Big Ten game Saturday and, a couple of turnovers notwithstanding, put up respectable numbers in Michigan’s Big House:

211: Total yards (145 passing, 66 rushing)

67.3: Completion percentage (14-for-21).

2: Turnovers (one fumble, one interception), which led to 14 Michigan points.
