Minnesota and Wisconsin had to wait a little longer than expected, but the battle for Paul Bunyan’s Axe is finally here.

The two B1G rivals are set to go head-to-head this weekend, closing out the conference season in 2020. It’s a rescheduled game from earlier this year, when the rivalry bout had to be called off due to COVID-19 issues.

Both teams are hoping to close the year on a high note.

Minnesota enters the game with a 3-3 record and is looking to make it two wins against the Badgers in the last three seasons. Before Saturday afternoon’s scheduled kickoff, the Minnesota football program released an awesome hype video for the game.

This trailer will have Gopher fans fired up for Saturday’s rivalry game, even as the temperatures continue to drop in the Midwest. Enjoy the video:
