Web reactions will be new series looking at news from around the web after Mountain West games.

This could have gone up on Friday, but I came across this idea late last night. Basically it is a final look at the games from perspective from others.

Highlights of the game:

The Daily Gopher on their QB MarQueis Gray who finally showed up in overtime:

Gray's night was kind of bizarre in that his stat line looks rather good and he played well in the OT (2/2, 35 yards and 2 TDs). But his misses nearly cost us the game and at times his passing was brutally ugly.

Las Vegas Sun on Nick Sherry's tough night:

There's no record of just how many times UNLV quarterback Nick Sherry got hit Thursday night. Officially he was sacked just twice, but seemingly every time he went back to pass - and even just after hand-offs - Sherry had to get picked up off the ground by teammates.

SB Nation Minnesota takes a look back at the game:

Defensively, after a shaky first series, the Gophers did a pretty good job. UNLV's lone touchdown came when they started inside the Minnesota 35 after Stoudermire's muffed punt, and for the most part Minnesota's defense really controlled things. Safety Derrick Wells was particularly impressive with eight tackles and two interceptions, including the big one in overtime that allowed the Gophers to win it with Jordan Wettstein's field goal in the third overtime.

UNLV fans held their breath after a late hit on star running back Tim Cornett:

The scariest moment of the night for Rebels fans wasn't when Minnesota's Jordan Wettstein lined up for his game-winning 39-yard field goal. That distinction came one overtime earlier when Cornett took a late hit after stepping out of bounds.

He flew into one of the advertising borders on the side of the field and stayed there for a few seconds. Cornett made his way back into the game one play later, but admitted his shoulder was sore.
