Minnesota takes halftime lead over Nebraska thanks to Brevyn Spann-Ford's first TD catch of 2020
Minnesota took a 17-14 lead into halftime at Nebraska, thanks in large part due to a nice touchdown catch late in the first half by Brevyn Spann-Ford.
The catch required athleticism and good concentration, the Minnesota tight end rising up well to snare the ball and then hold on despite taking a hard hit by Nebraska linebacker JoJo Domann. It was a fantastic, all-around catch from the sophomore tight end.

The four-yard pass from Tanner Morgan to Spann-Ford was the tight end’s first touchdown of the season and retook the lead for Minnesota.
But it was not only the first touchdown of the season for Spann-Ford but also his first reception. Last year as a freshman, the 6-foot-7-inch tight end had four catches for 25 yards and a touchdown.
The touchdown capped off a six-play, 75-yard drive by the Golden Gophers.
