MINNEAPOLIS (WKOW) — With a share of the Big Ten West Division title and a berth in the 2019 Big Ten Football Championship Game at stake, 13th-ranked Wisconsin heads to Minneapolis Saturday to battle No. 9 Minnesota for Paul Bunyan’s Axe.

Tune in to WKOW-TV at 10:30 a.m. Saturday for a pregame special, then stay with ABC for the 2:30 p.m. kickoff.

The Badgers (9-2, 6-2 Big Ten) and Gophers (10-1, 7-1) are set to meet for the 129th time in the FBS’ most-played rivalry, which stands even at 60-60-8 after Minnesota snapped Wisconsin’s 14-game win streak in the series last season.

This year’s clash will be just the 6th meeting of ranked teams in series history, with Wisconsin holding a 5-0 record in games in which both the Badgers and Gophers hold Top 25 rankings. Read more, Page 10.

Heisman Trophy contender Jonathan Taylor is the nation’s leading scorer, with 22 touchdowns, and ranks 2nd nationally in rushing (153.2 ypg) on the heels of 3 straight 200-yard performances in November.
