Study Hall: Minnesota 42, Indiana 39

Confused? Visit the Advanced Stats glossary here. Or just skip to the words. I won't be offended. (Okay, I'll only be a little offended.)

Indiana's starting field position was 12 yards better than Minnesota's, and the Gophers really couldn't run the ball efficiently at all. That meant that a ton had to go right for the Gophers to have a chance. A ton went right, I guess. Philip Nelson looked like [insert great Minnesota QB here ... Cory Sauter? This guy, I guess?], Minnesota recovered three of four fumbles, and the Gophers had just about a perfect second quarter. Just enough.
