The Cats scored on their first three possessions, but have been stopped by the Gophers ever since.
Kain Colter has been all over the place for NU's offense so far, catching a touchdown pass, running the ball and playing quarterback.

Venric Mark was impressive on kick returns, returning on to the NU 45-yard line and another to the Minnesota 45.
