Minnesota is off to a remarkable 6-0 start this season, and a big part of that start is the balance that QB Tanner Morgan has brought to the offense.

Through six games, Minnesota is averaging 229 yards a game through the air and 186 yards a game on the ground. With a trio of strong running backs and a deep group of talented receivers, the Gophers are not afraid to attack defenses in a variety of ways.

While every player is vital to the offense, the work of Morgan is what has driven the unit as a whole. He has thrown for over 1,300 yards and 14 TDs while leading the B1G in a key passing statistic entering Week 8.

According to Twitter user CFB.io, Minnesota is currently leading the B1G in passing yards per attempt. Morgan, who has thrown every pass for the Gophers to this point, is averaging 11.1 yards per attempt.

That mark is also good for third among all Power 5 teams:

For comparison, Penn State’s Sean Clifford is at 9.8 yards per attempt. Ohio State’s Justin Fields is at 9.2  yards per attempt.

Hopefully, Morgan continues this hot start as the Gophers look to remain undefeated in Week 8.
