Minnesota extends lead with punt block

September, 17, 2011
The kicking game has produced its share of problems for Minnesota in recent years.

But the Gophers have been very solid in the all-important third phase today against Miami (Ohio).

In addition to converting three field goals, Minnesota extended its lead to 29-16 after running back Duane Bennett blocked a punt and ran in the ball for a 2-yard touchdown.

After Miami couldn't convert a PAT attempt to take the lead, the Gophers have been in control and are in position to give Jerry Kill a very meaningful first win as Minnesota coach.

Marqueis Gray continues to have a very big day at quarterback. Let's see if the defense can make enough stops.
