Despite the laughable fact that the fans at TCF Bank Stadium on Saturday had the same number of passing yards as the Gophers did through almost the whole game, redshirt freshman quarterback Chris Streveler might have played his way into the starting spot.

Unlike redshirt sophomore Mitch Leidner’s first collegiate start, Streveler’s didn’t feature four rushing touchdowns or multiple completed passes — unless throwing one to the other team counts.

While he didn’t register a carry in Minnesota’s 24-7 victory against San Jose State on Sept. 20, junior running back Rodrick Williams was crucial in the Gophers’ second-half push at Michigan a week later.

After that contest, Gophers head coach Jerry Kill said senior running back David Cobb, who finished the 30-14 Michigan victory with 183 rushing yards, was shaken up toward the end of the game.

As Cobb sat out two series in the second half, Williams came in and ran the ball four times for 14 yards — helping the Gophers put up 10 points in the process.

Recap: Minnesota (3-1) compiled 380 rushing yards and only 7 passing yards to beat San Jose State for the second straight season. Redshirt freshman quarterback Chris Streveler made his first-career start, filling in for a hobbled Mitch Leidner, and ran for 161 yards.  

Senior running back David Cobb had his second 200-plus rushing yard game of the season with 207 rushing yards and two touchdowns.

Minnesota’s defense was solid throughout, forcing five turnovers and holding in key moments.

Minnesota’s defense made plays when it mattered most in Saturday’s game.

Minnesota’s offense was more one-dimensional than ever on Saturday, pounding the ball on the ground for 380 yards while only passing for 7.

But that didn’t matter, as the Gophers (3-1) made plays on the defensive side of the ball when it mattered most.

Minnesota has playmakers at every level of its defense and benefited from looking back on film from last year’s 43-24 victory over the Spartans.

Quarterback Chris Streveler made his first collegiate start in Saturday’s win.

Last year when San Jose State came to town, a redshirt freshman made his first-career start and used his legs to lead the Gophers to a victory.

Fast forward 364 days and the storyline was still the same.

This time, it was Chris Streveler filling in for an injured Mitch Leidner and leading the team to a 24-7 victory — instead of Leidner filling in for former Gophers quarterback Philip Nelson.

“Mitch and I were talking before the game about the similarities of the games that him and I both had. It’s just kind of funny,” Streveler said.

The Minnesota Daily sat down with University of Minnesota athletics director Norwood Teague for its inaugural edition of “Talkin’ with Teague” on Thursday.

Teague, now in his third year at the University, discussed new NCAA rules, the school’s facilities and the Minnesota Vikings’ presence on campus.

The NCAA established a new rule in April allowing athletes to have unlimited snacks. What impact do you believe this has had on the school’s student-athletes?

Many college football fans would say that last weekend’s most contentious story was the suspension of reigning Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston.

They’d be wrong.

Less than two weeks ago, Arkansas State University banned the school’s football players from putting cross stickers on their helmets to honor two former members of the ASU program who tragically passed away this past year.

Marty Orbuch, 82, has been a Gophers football season-ticket holder for a half-century.

As a 1957 University of Minnesota Medical School alumnus, he wanted to keep the tradition of Gophers athletics alive in his family by buying two season tickets around the 20-yard line.

But like some other avid Gophers fans, he’s unsure if he’ll continue buying season football tickets because of new hikes in seating fees that start next season.
