Gary Russell Named Big Ten Player of the Week
In the fourth quarter, Russell followed up his final scoring run by completing a two-point conversion pass to tight end Matt Spaeth for the final points in a 42-21 triumph. Russell, who ranks second on the team and fifth in the conference with 98.0 rushing yards per outing, recorded his fourth 100-yard rushing effort this year and in his career. He leads Minnesota and ranks third in the league with 15 rushing touchdowns, two shy of the Gophers' single-season record of 17 rushing scores established by Marion Barber III in 2003. Russell's 16 touchdowns overall rate third in the league and sixth in the country, as he has tallied at least two touchdowns in a game seven times this season, which marks a new school record. He picks up the first Big Ten Player of the Week award of his career.
