Continued: Leidner appears headed for QB start in Gophers' Big Ten opener

“We need those kinds of plays,” Kill said. “We probably need more of them as we go to be successful. When we throw the ball, we need to throw it with great accuracy and pick up third downs.”

Kill also stressed the importance of limiting turnovers. Former Gophers quarterback Max Shortell had three interceptions and a fumble in last year’s 31-13 loss at Iowa. Nelson has thrown two interceptions this year, and Leidner has yet to throw one, in 21 fewer attempts.

“You’re only as good as your last game, so we’ll see if we don’t force passes,” Kill said. “That will be the key to the game, I believe. Last year we had four turnovers, and if we have that, we’ll have the same result.”
