Good news on and off the field for Minnesota:
Quarterback Mitch Leidner rushed for 151 yards and four touchdowns to lift Minnesota to a 43-24 victory over San Jose State on Saturday.
Leidner was filling in for injured starter Philip Nelson, who was out with a bad hamstring. He also passed for 71 yards as the Golden Gophers improved to 4-0. Gophers coach Jerry Kill returned to the sideline a week after missing the second half because of an epileptic seizure and made it through the game without incident.
Yeah, I heard about the seizure. I hope everything will stay fine. That stuff is no joke, no matter how funny they try to make it in the movies. Anyway, any time you lose to a rushing QB, your defense needs a little work.
David Fales threw for 439 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions for San Jose State (1-2). Chandler Jones had seven catches for 197 yards and three touchdowns for the Spartans, who were missing top receiver Noah Grigsby with a knee injury.
Plus, Liedner is a big guy for a QB. While your dense may not like a dangerous QB, the offense can do so much more with it. Thanks, Yahoo!.
