Gophers meet challenge, use 2nd-half rally to beat Purdue

Trey Potts gave Minnesota the lead on a 4-yard touchdown run three plays into the second half and the Golden Gophers hung on for a 20-13 victory at Purdue.

It’s the first second-half comeback in coach P.J. Fleck’s 50-game tenure at Minnesota.

The Gophers had lost 17 straight when trailing at halftime under Fleck. Purdue’s offense was shut out in the second half.
