Monday update: Kickoff time set for San Jose State; Marcus Jones honored

Posted by: Joe Christensen under Gophers on TV, Gophers awards and honors Updated: September 9, 2013 - 10:39 AM

The Gophers announced this morning that their Sept. 21 home game against San Jose State will start at 11 a.m., and will be televised on ESPN or ESPN2.

That means the Gophers will conclude non-conference play with back-to-back 11 a.m., starts at TCF Bank Stadium, including this Saturday against Western Illinois. The Gophers' homecoming game against Iowa on Sept. 28 starts at 2:30 p.m.

Five of this year's game times are still TBA. Here's a link to the schedule.

MARCUS JONES HONORED

Marcus Jones was named Big Ten Special Teams Co-Player of the Week on Monday, along with Purdue's Akeem Hunt. Jones had a 65-yard punt return touchdown at New Mexico State and had a 98-yard kick return touchdown against UNLV in the season opener.
