Minnesota coach Jerry Kill missed an entire game for the first time because of his epilepsy, staying at home Saturday after suffering another seizure. The Golden Gophers lost 42-13 to No. 19 Michigan. Minnesota officials said Kill was not feeling well on Friday, but planned to travel to Ann Arbor on Saturday to coach in the game. But he suffered a seizure on Saturday morning and was resting at home in Minnesota while the Gophers played.
Denard Robinson threw two touchdown passes and ran for a TD to lead No. 19 Michigan in a 58-0 win over Minnesota.
Minnesota quarterback MarQueis Gray has been knocked out of the starting lineup by a toe injury and Max Shortell got the start for the Gophers at Michigan on Saturday.
Now it’s the Big 10 season, which means the 1-3 Gophers can achieve a lot for their program if they can at least be competitive on Saturday against the Wolverines. It’s the battle for the Little Brown Jug in front of more than 100,000 fans.
