POSTGAME: The below statement is from senior associate athletic director Chris Werle on Gopher head football coach Jerry Kill's medical condition following Minnesota's Sept. 14, 2013 game against Western Illinois:

"Coach Kill suffered a seizure at the end of the first half of today’s game against Western Illinois. He was attended to by medical personnel on the field and was then driven to a local hospital as a precaution to ensure proper medication levels. He is resting comfortably. Coach Kill’s staff, which is the most tenured in the nation, and his team are well acquainted with his condition and are prepared if a situation like this arises. Coach Kill’s epilepsy has been documented by both local and national media and our fans are aware that situations like this can happen."
