Minnesota freshman Tai’yon Devers had a hit on Colorado State quarterback Collin Hill Saturday which sent both the football and Hill’s helmet flying.
They call that "LOWERING THE BOOM." #flyinghelmetalert

Minnesota recovered the fumble and the Gophers turned it into a field goal to go up 17-7 just a few minutes before halftime.
The strip sack is nothing new for Devers. The 6-foot-4, 215-pound defensive end had two of them in his collegiate debut on Sept. 1 against Oregon State.
All three of Devers tackles this season have been strip sacks!
