The longest running rivalry in NCAA Division 1 football continues today when the Wisconsin Badgers play the Minnesota Golden Gophers. This is the 123rd meeting between the two schools, who first played each other in 1890.
The Badgers come in heavily favored, and rightfully so, they have one of the top B1G teams, but the Gophers have their best team in probably 10 years and there is excitement once again in Minnesota. Plus, it’s rivalry time, and any time these teams play the blood gets pumping. It should be kind of cool out in the stands, with highs in the upper teens, so hopefully it’ll be a hard fought, close contest to keep everyone warm.
It’s the Battle for Paul Bunyan’s Axe in Minneapolis.
