Nelson had the better statistics against Northwestern, completing eight of 11 passes for 112 yards and one touchdown and rushing nine times for 26 yards. Leidner had one completion for 11 yards and seven rushes for 27 yards.

When might Kill come back? “You know, I don’t know,” Claeys said. “We didn’t talk about it. … He’s not 100 percent, obviously. But [Kill and wife Rebecca] feel good about the process they’re going through to get him to that level. We’ll just have to see. It was sure good just having him around. As I said before, he’s our biggest friend and it was great to see him show up.”


• Nebraska is the third of seven opponents the Gophers have played to have a bye before playing Minnesota. … The Gophers will be facing a talented Nebraska offense next Saturday. The Cornhuskers rank 21st in the nation in total offense with 490.2 yards per game, fourth-best in the Big Ten. But their defense is another story. They are allowing 407.2 yards per game and rank 72nd in the nation — compared to the Gophers, who are allowing 375.9 yards per game and are ranked 45th.

• Former Gophers quarterback MarQueis Gray continues to get some playing time with the Cleveland Browns. Gray was targeted once in the team’s 31-13 loss to the Packers on Sunday and also took a snap as a quarterback in the Wildcat formation.

• The 2013 U.S. Junior Hockey Select Team was announced Thursday, and eight of the 22 players were from Minnesota. The team will compete at the World Junior A Challenge in Nova Scotia in November. The Minnesota natives to make it were defensemen Teemu Kivihalme (Savage), Neal Pionk (Hermantown), Steven Johnson (Excelsior) and Jordan Gross (Maple Grove) and forwards Connor Hurley (Eagan), Austin Poganski (St. Cloud), C.J. Franklin (Forest Lake) and Karson Kuhlman (Cloquet).

• Gophers athletic director Norwood Teague said half of the $450,000 needed to install lights at Siebert Field has been raised and he hopes the baseball team will be able to play night games there in the near future. … Teague also said he has a few commitments to get the new practice facility for men’s and women’s basketball built. … Meanwhile, on the plan to raise $190 million to upgrade a number of athletics facilities on the campus, Teague said, “We haven’t really announced anything yet [in terms of how much money we’ve raised], but we’ve had good progress and I’m looking forward to working on that throughout the next year.”
