It’s not very often that the Gopher football program stares at what could be a season defining game. That’s the case Saturday at home against Iowa, as a 4-0 non-conference record sets the table. In the same situation a year ago, Iowa ran over the Gophers as Mark Weisman dominated. He’s back to run the football for Iowa this season.
Devyn Marble and Aaron White each had 15 points as Iowa shrugged off an early 16-point deficit and rolled past Minnesota 72-51 on Sunday for its third straight win.
Few things have bothered Iowa more over the past two seasons than losing the “Floyd of Rosedale” trophy to Minnesota and then failing to win it back.
The University of Minnesota football team will host Northwestern for the fall 2012 Homecoming game, and the Gophers will take place in Iowa’s Homecoming game, too, in a fight for Floyd of Rosedale.
When talking Gopher rivals at the University of Minnesota campus, Wisconsin and Iowa top the list.
