Minnesota Head Coach Brandon Eggum sat down with GopherSports.com to discuss this past week’s performance against Air Force and the recruiting class of 2022. The Gophers picked up a 29-6 victory at Maturi Pavilion on Nov. 12, with three different newcomers picking up their first dual victories in the Maroon and Gold.
Minnesota will be back in action this Friday in Brookings, S.D. when they take on the Jackrabbits of South Dakota State University. The Gophers will also take on No. 3 Oklahoma State on Sunday at 5 p.m. in Stillwater, Okla.
The college season is here and on Episode 34 of The Guillotine Grapevine, we’ll quickly run down Minnesota’s 29-6 win over the Air Force Academy on Sunday in Minneapolis. Eight Gophers earned victories including the first home victories for Hunter Marko, Owen Webster and Rylee Streifel.
