2019 Minnesota Football Redshirt Tracker - Week 1

New, 4 comments

Tracking the freshmen who retain redshirt eligibility for Gopher football and who is burning a year.

NCAA Football: South Dakota State at Minnesota Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

Once again we will be tracking the number of games played by Minnesota freshmen on their way to retaining or losing their redshirt eligibility. Now, as per usual, I am using the participation report on GopherSports.com. Any changes from the game’s participation report will need to be noted and changed here eventually, but for today that is what I am using.

For those unaware, the NCAA changed their redshirt rule in 2018 to allow players to participate in up to 4 games and retain their redshirt status. Once a player hits 5 games, he is going to be a sophomore the following season.

  • DB - Tyler Nubin (1)

  • LS - Brady Weeks (1)
  • K - Michael Lantz (1) - 2 for 3 on extra points missing the long one following a personal foul penalty
