Pass-rush prow­ess

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

Though the Go­phers are tied for the third-fewest sacks in the Big Ten with only eight, ju­nior de­fen­sive end Carter Cough­lin is tied with Iowa’s Nel­son and Ohio State’s Dre’Mont Jones for the con­fer­ence lead with five.

Cough­lin, a con­verted line­backer whose work with new pass rush spe­cial­ist coach Mar­cus West has been in­stru­men­tal in im­prov­ing his tech­nique, had a strip-sack of Nate Stan­ley last week deep in Iowa ter­ri­tory that set up a Min­nesota touch­down.
