Minnesota at Oregon State preview
Minnesota (1-0) started the season with a 17-7 win at home against Buffalo on Thursday, Aug. 31. In coach P.J. Fleck’s Gophers debut, Minnesota held off the Bulls.
Conor Rhoda passed for 176 yards, one touchdown and one interception. With the rushing attack, Rodney Smith (76 yards on 23 carries) and Shannon Brooks (69 yards on 18 carries, one TD) led the day.
The Gophers’ defense was strong up front, holding the Bulls to only 51 rushing yards on 22 attempts. Most of the game’s scoring happened in the first quarter, as it was 14-7.
Oregon State (1-1) has been busy this season. The Beavers have already played two games, losing to Colorado State and beating Portland State. After losing at Colorado State, 58-27, on Aug. 26, Oregon State returned home last Saturday to beat the Vikings, 35-32.
One week after surrendering 525 yards to the Rams, Oregon State struggled again. The FCS Vikings rolled up 515 yards to the Beavers’ 389. But Oregon State scored the winning points with a 17-yard touchdown pass from Jake Luton to Isaiah Hodgins with 1:08 remaining in the game.
Through two games, Luton has 539 passing yards (45-for-72 passing) with 3 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. Ryan Nall is the Beavers’ leading rusher in the young season, getting 174 yards and 2 touchdowns through two games.
Oregon State’s defense hasn’t had too much success. The Beavers have allowed at least 30 points a game every season going back to 2013. After two games, opponents are scoring 45 points per game with 520 yards per game on offense.
This is the second season in a row the Gophers are playing the Beavers. Last year, Minnesota won at home, 30-23. Oregon State led in the fourth quarter before the Gophers scored twice to pull out the win.
If Minnesota wins, it would be 2-0 for the second year in a row. But it’s the first time the Gophers are playing in Corvallis. In the all-time series, the Gophers have a 3-1 lead. But Saturday’s game is only the second meeting since 1981.
The past two Minnesota road openers have been thrillers. The Gophers lost to Penn State, 29-26 in overtime, in 2016. In 2015, Minnesota won at Colorado State, 23-20, in overtime.
