In his four years at Minnesota, Morgan has now passed for 7,071 career total yards. Morgan is fourth all-time in career passing yards in the program. He is only 376 yards away from surpassing Bryan Cupito for second-most all-time in career passing yards at Minnesota.
Morgan threw for 8-of-12 for 125 yards in Minnesota’s conservative win over Maryland. He was not needed for much with the 3-headed approach out of the Gophers backfield.
A couple of other Gopher players had significant moments from Saturday’s win. Wide receiver Chris Autman-Bell hauled in his 100th career reception. True freshman Mar’Keise Irving also punched in the first TD of his career.
