Gophers Saturday replay

  • Updated: October 28, 2007 - 7:30 PM

NO. 15 MICHIGAN 34, GOPHERS 10

Recap: The Gophers kept the score close for a half, but Michigan, playing without quarterback Chad Henne and tailback Mike Hart, put the hammer down in the second half. Trailing 10-0, the Wolverines ripped off 34 unanswered points to hand the Gophers their seventh consecutive loss. Freshman quarterback Adam Weber struggled against Michigan's pressure and completed only 14 of 30 passes for 99 yards. He lost one fumble and was sacked three times. Safety Dominique Barber scored on a 46-yard fumble return for a touchdown. Duane Bennett (106 yards on 20 carries) became the first Gophers freshman to crack 100 rushing yards since 2003.

UP NEXT: ILLINOIS

When, where: 7 p.m. Saturday, Metrodome

TV, radio: Big Ten Network, 830-AM

Records: Illinois 6-3, 3-2 Big Ten; Gophers 1-8, 0-5

The skinny: Gophers coach Tim Brewster will face his alma mater for the first time. Illinois became bowl-eligible and stopped a two-game losing streak with a 28-17 victory against Ball State. Illinois leads the Big Ten and ranks eighth nationally in rushing (240.6 yards per game), but the Illini are 114th nationally in passing (146.6 yards). This will be the first meeting between the teams since 2004. The Gophers have won the past three meetings and six of the past seven.

BIG TEN SNEAK PREVIEW

WISCONSIN AT NO. 1 OHIO STATE

Records: Wisconsin 7-2, 3-2 Big Ten; Ohio State 9-0, 5-0

The skinny: The top-ranked Buckeyes showed they are a legitimate contender for the national title with a thorough 37-17 thrashing of Penn State on the road Saturday night. Ohio State's defense is playing at an incredibly high level right, and its offense is improving by the week. The Badgers gained some confidence by hammering Indiana after a difficult few weeks, but it will be a tall order to win in Columbus.

Bragging rights

First-year Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio has pointed to this game since taking over the program last winter, but the Spartans are not exactly brimming with confidence right now. They are 1-4 in conference play after blowing a 14-point halftime lead against Iowa. It's hard to imagine Michigan quarterback Chad Henne and tailback Mike Hart -- both of whom did not play against the Gophers because of injuries -- will want to miss this game.
