No. 19 Michigan Pulls Away To Rout Minnesota 42-13

Devin Gardner threw a 24-yard, go-ahead touchdown pass to Devin Funchess late in the first half and No. 19 Michigan pulled away to rout Minnesota 42-13 on Saturday. The Wolverines (5-0, 1-0 Big Ten) relied on their running game to take pressure off the turnover-prone Gardner. He didn’t throw an interception for the first time since making his first start as a quarterback last year at Minnesota. The Golden Gophers (4-2, 0-2) were without coach Jerry Kill for an entire game for the first time because of his epilepsy. He had a seizure Saturday morning, when he planned to travel to Michigan to coach in the game, and remained home to rest in Minnesota.

Mike Max’s News & Notes: August 11, 2012

People inside the Vikings insist they are intent on making playing baseball a part of the new football stadium. If the NHL gets salary roll backs as part of their new collective bargaining agreement, it could be big savings for Craig Leipold on Zach Praise and Ryan Suter’s contracts. Suter chartered his own plane to be part of the fundraiser for Jack Jablonski. Nice move!
