Gopher QB Marqueis Gray's fourth-down sprint for the pylon from the 2-yard line in the closing minutes lifted Minnesota to a 22-21 comeback victory over Iowa.

James Vandenberg went 16 for 24 for 177 yards and a touchdown to Marvin McNutt, who caught seven of those passes for 101 yards. Mike Meyer missed two field goals for Iowa in the first half (24 and 43 yards) on consecutive possessions. Marcus Coker carried the ball 32 times through several huge holes for 252 yards and two touchdowns.

After cutting the lead to 21-16, the Gophers caught Iowa playing almost 15 yards back on the kickoff, and Kim Royston -- who had a game-high 16 tackles -- recovered the onside attempt. Gray had a pair of sharp passes for first downs to move the ball forward and then, on fourth-and-goal at the 2, ran to his right to scrape the edge of the end zone with 2:48 remaining for Minnesota's first lead of the entire month.
