It’s no secret that Minnesota wide receivers have struggled in 2013. Well, there was no struggling on Derrick Engel‘s part – at least not on a fourth-and-10 in the second quarter Saturday. Engel hauled in a highlight-reel 33-yard scoring strike form Philip Nelson to give the Gophers a 14-10 lead over Nebraska. Watch the fourth-down grab in this post.
It’s rare for a one-yard run to drop jaws, but that’s just what Braxton Miller did on his short highlight-reel scoring run last season at Penn State. The run was so great, in fact, the Ohio State quarterback picked it as his “Signature Moment.” And to think it almost didn’t happen.
As former Iowa quarterback Ricky Stanzi said following the Hawkeyes’ 2010 Orange Bowl victory: “If you don’t love it, leave it. USA, No. 1.” One Iowa fan at Saturday’s game vs. Northwestern agrees 100 percent.
Iowa basketball fans were treated to a fun night of festivities as Fran McCaffery’s team was introduced to the public at the Hawkeyes’ Black and Gold Blowout event on Friday evening. The night’s events included a team introduction, a dunk contest and a full scrimmage.
It was expected to be one of the most exciting games of the college hockey season, and that it was. In a breathtaking back-and-fourth contest, Minnesota and Boston College skated to a 3-3 tie Friday night.
It’s time to get you ready for another exciting weekend of Big Ten football action. Here is a rundown of the upcoming games on Saturday and a recap of this week’s news leading up to the big weekend ahead.
