Domination: Minnesota just forced Illinois to punt after crazy goal-to-go sequence
Minnesota is dominating in its quest for its first win of 2020.
Just how dominant have the Gophers been? They just forced Illinois to punt after having first-and-goal from the 10-yard line.
Ironically, the Illini had a chance to settle for a field goal after facing fourth-and-1 from the 12-yard line. Illinois converted that fourth down for first-and-goal.
After that, a run for no-gain, an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, a rush for negative 23 yards that was essentially a fumble, and an incomplete pass led to the punt on fourth-and-goal. It gave Minnesota the ball back on the 11-yard line:
