While the Gophers were able to escape with a 23-20 overtime victory Saturday against Colorado State, their passing attack struggled.
Minnesota was able to find success at times, though, mostly in their no-huddle offense, a tactic where the team gets to the line of scrimmage faster to run more plays and tire out the defense.

Saturday, Sept. 12
Fort Collins, Colo.
In the thin Colorado air, kicker Ryan Santoso didn’t need a lot of leg to give the Gophers a victory.
Santoso booted an 18-yard game-winning field goal in overtime, after the contest nearly slipped away from Minnesota.
