With Kill At Hospital, Minnesota Tops WIU 29-12

With Minnesota coach Jerry Kill at a hospital after a seizure at halftime, David Cobb and Rodrick Williams each rushed for two touchdowns to lead the Gophers past Western Illinois 29-12 on Saturday afternoon. Kill has epilepsy, and this is the fourth time in three seasons with the Gophers he’s had an episode on game day. The scene of Kill writhing back and forth on the sideline is always jarring nonetheless, and the sluggish Gophers (3-0) found themselves trailing 12-7 until late in the third quarter.

Gophers Still Trying To Get Passing Game Going

Minnesota has scored 95 points over the first two games, and the Gophers have barely mastered the forward pass so far. That could be a good sign. If sophomore quarterback Philip Nelson and the rest of the offense find a rhythm with the aerial attack to supplement what has the potential to be a rugged, productive running game, the Gophers will be in good shape.
