Minnesota���s Seasoned Line In Peak Form With Maryland Up Next

Most of Minnesota’s regular offensive linemen might have expected to be done with college by now, with five of them in their fifth year or more.

The guys up front for the Gophers have found a groove at just the right time, as several of them enter the final stretch of their unglamorous, unforgettable experience as blockers in the Big Ten.

When Minnesota beat Nebraska last week, a well-rounded performance by the offensive line made a big impact. Tanner Morgan passed for a season-high 209 yards and was sacked only once. Bryce Williams, in the lead tailback role after season-ending injuries to Mohamed Ibrahim and Trey Potts, rushed 17 times for 127 yards.

“Protection was phenomenal, and we did a phenomenal job in the run game as well,” Morgan said. “It was a very clean and a very efficient game up front.”
