Big Ten Conference
After a big game in a big win over San Jose State on Saturday, Gophers quarterback Mitch Leidner earned some Big Ten Conference recognition on Monday. Leidner, a redshirt freshman from Lakeville, ran for 151 yards and four touchdowns as the Gophers finished 4-0 in the non-conference schedule after a 43-24 win over San Jose State.
Nine of the Gopher men’s basketball team’s 13 non-conference games for the 2013-14 season will be played within the friendly confines of Williams Arena. Game times and TV rights will be released by the Big Ten Conference at a later date.
The Gopher basketball team dropped to .500 in Big Ten play, losing at Michigan State 61 to 50.
The Big Ten Conference says it has reached a media agreement with FOX Sports to be the official broadcast partner of the 2011-16 Big Ten Football Championship Games.
