Tyler Moore, Minnesota’s starting center, has been ruled out of the Holiday Bowl on Tuesday with a back injury.
Normally a change at center isn’t a very noteworthy development, but this time is different. This time, the replacement is Matt Leidner, the brother of Gophers starting QB Mitch Leidner.
A third Leidner, youngest brother Jake, called attention to the situation just prior to kickoff.
Absolutely huge S/O to my older brother Matt on starting center @HolidayBowlGame
