This game did not start out well for Minnesota. The offense wasn't getting going, the defense gave up two touchdowns on two big plays (including the longest play anyone had allowed OSU to have all season on the J.T. Barrett touchdown run)...it looked like it could be a blowout.
And then...Briean Boddy-Calhoun!
That INT led to a David Cobb touchdown. BBC would go on to force a fumble just as Ohio State's Elliott Ezekiel was about to score their 3rd touchdown and the Gophers recovered in the end zone for a touchback. David Cobb put up another touchdown and it was suddenly 14-14.
Ohio State got a field goal on their last drive (following a questionable PI call) and that's where we stand at the half, 17-14 Ohio State. The Gophers get the ball to start the 2nd half so let's get excited!
