WATCH: Minnesota WR Rashod Bateman makes what could be the catch of the year already for 2019
Minnesota’s 2019 season is here and South Dakota State is the Golden Gophers’ first opponent.
The first quarter went scoreless, but the Gophers — and wide receiver Rashod Bateman in particular — have come alive in the second.
Bateman got in on the Gophers’ first TD of the 2019 season and was absolutely a part of the team’s second.

Bateman now has 5 catches for 132 yards and a TD at halftime. The first TD drive for Minnesota was an old school, beautiful type of 18-play drive.
This second scoring drive wasn’t as long. But, it probably contained more beauty thanks to that catch.
That one will be on SportsCenter’s Top 10 Plays. Book it.
