The Gopher football team already has five touchdowns from their defense and special teams in just 2 games so far this season. They only had two all of last year.

A big help to the Gophers is a healthy Marcus Jones. The defensive back returned to play and ran in a kick return in the Gophers' opener. In the Sept. 7 game, Jones had a 65-yard punt return for a touchdown against New Mexico State.

Jones had his season cut short by knee injuries in each of the last two years.
