Quarterback Mitch Leidner completed 20-30 passes for 295 yards and threw four touchdowns in the win. Leidner's favorite target was fellow senior Drew Wolitarsky who caught 8 passes for 125 yards including two touchdowns.

With the offense clicking all game, Minnesota's special teams punted just once on Saturday.

On the defensive side of the football, the Gophers' run defense was solid with Indiana State rushing for 3.3 yards per carry. The Sycamores accumulated 356 yards of offense in their loss to Minnesota.
