The highlight of the first half of the first Big Ten game of the season?
That would be Gophers tight end Maxx Williams jumping over this guy from Eastern Illinois. It was awesome.

The play was an early one on the Gophers' second touchdown drive of the first half. Williams' only catch of the first half, it went for 25 yards, 25 of the eventual 90 that resulted in the TD.
Williams had the highlight-reel play, but quarterback Mitch Leidner had the best first half of anyone, rushing for touchdown and throwing for another.
