The Morning Journal (Lorain, OH) - - SPORTS -

The Go­phers have made true fresh­man Daniel Faalele the starter at right tackle, a switch made dur­ing the last game against Iowa when An­thony Nel­son had three sacks while be­ing blocked by sopho­more Sam Sch­lueter. The Aus­tralia-born Faalele is listed at 6-foot-9 and 400 pounds.

“I think we just ride with him. Let him play. He’s go­ing to have to play. He’s one of the strong­est peo­ple prob­a­bly in the Big Ten,” said Fleck, on whether to pre­serve a red­shirt sea­son for Faalele.
