first_imgMichigan defensive line stuffs Minnesota at the goal line.Twitter/@ByAZunigaThe end to the Michigan-Minnesota game was not exactly a ringing endorsement of interim Gophers coach Tracy Claeys. The Gophers appeared to take the lead on a beautiful touchdown throw by Mitch Leidner to Drew Wolitarsky, but a review showed that he was down at the one yard line. Down 29-26, with a timeout left, Minnesota wasted most of its time before a Leidner incompletion on first down. The Gophers only had time for one more play, and Leidner was stuffed at the goal line by the Michigan defense.Michigan wins. https://t.co/MPy8zslh7i— Alejandro Zúñiga (@ByAZuniga) November 1, 2015Michigan had a huge win stolen a few weeks back, and today the Wolverines came out and stole a win from a very emotionally-charged Minnesota squad.last_img
