Steakhouse Gopher Offensive
Player of the Week, scored on a 44-yard run to cap off an eight-play, 95-yard drive.
That score put the Gophers up 10-0. He scored his second touchdown on an
8-yard run. The score capped off a four-play, 56-yard drive.
Barber threw his second touchdown of the year with a 21-yard pass to
Ernie Wheelwright. He threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to Jared Ellerson against
Northwestern on September 25th.
Barber’s two touchdowns moved him into a second-place tie on Minnesota’s
career rushing touchdown list with 34. He is tied with his father, Marion Barber
(1977-80). Barber’s two rushing touchdowns moved him into a tie for 10th on the
school’s single-season rushing touchdown list with 10. Barber holds the
single-season record with 17 in 2003.
Barber’s 65-yard run in the third quarter was a career-long and Barber
tied his father for fourth on the school’s all-time list with 12 100-yard
