The Wisconsin Badgers could make it 14 in a row against their border rival but also pad their College Football Playoff resume when they battle the Minnesota Golden Gophers this afternoon (Saturday).
The Badgers are coming off a 24-10 victory where quarterback Alex Hornibrook overcame a rough start to finish with 143 yards and a touchdown. Freshman phenom Jonathan Taylor finished with 132 rushing yards but it was Kendric Pryor and receiver A.J. Taylor that found the end zone for the Badgers.
The Golden Gophers are coming off a wet and miserable game against Northwestern, getting shut out 39-0.
Winner of today’s game not only gets Paul Bunyan’s Axe, but gets the lead in the all-time series, currently knotted up at 59 wins a piece. The match-up begins at 2:30 p.m. on ABC.
