New Mexico State Upsets Minnesota

(AP) New Mexico State’s 28-21 victory at Minnesota on Saturday afternoon was overshadowed by a health scare for Gophers head coach Jerry Kill, who had an apparent seizure on the sideline and was taken from the stadium by ambulance with 20 seconds left in the game. Andrew Manley passed for 288 yards and three touchdowns for the Aggies (1-1), who beat a Big Ten team for the first time in program history. The Gophers (0-2) had the ball at the New Mexico State 25-yard line and were trying for the tying touchdown when medical personnel suddenly surrounded Kill. He was on his back, and at times his arms and legs were flapping back and forth. After about 15 minutes, Kill was hoisted on a stretcher and rolled off the field as the crowd clapped and chanted his first name.
