Gophers replay: Michigan 58, Minnesota 0

  • Updated: October 3, 2011 - 1:31 AM

NO. 19 MICHIGAN 58, GOPHERS 0

The recap: The Wolverines looked as if they were playing a different game than Minnesota, gobbling up yardage in huge chunks (and 580 overall) while forcing the Gophers into 10 punts and two turnovers. It's the worst conference loss in the Gophers' 116 years in the Big Ten.

What was learned: The Gophers are a long way from being competitive in the Big Ten, and the lack of tackling is alarming. Max Shortell is tough and determined but can't execute with defenders charging at him from all sides.

YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED:

• Former tailback Lamonte Edwards got his first action at linebacker and was credited with three tackles.

• Kyle Henderson filled in admirably for starting cornerback Troy Stoudermire, repeatedly chasing down Wolverines backs who broke through the defensive front. The senior cornerback made 10 tackles, a career-high nine of them by himself.

• A week after throwing a critical interception, Shortell avoided any such mistakes, despite relentless pressure from Michigan's front seven.

UP NEXT: PURDUE

11 a.m. Saturday, Ross-Ade Stadium

TV: ESPN

Radio: 100.3-FM

Records: Gophers 1-4, 0-1 Big Ten; Purdue 2-2, 0-0

The skinny: The Boilermakers weren't overwhelmed quite as badly as the Gophers on Saturday, but they had similar chances to win: None. Notre Dame racked up 551 yards of offense to Purdue's 276, led 38-3 until the final seconds, and watched the Boilermakers commit 13 penalties. Purdue has two quarterbacks, but neither Caleb TerBush nor Robert Marve, who has returned from knee surgery, has generated much offense against FBS teams.
