Who’s ready to battle for Paul Bunyan’s Axe?
It’s hard to believe the season finale is already here, but Minnesota and Wisconsin are getting set for what is shaping up to be an epic addition to their rivalry. Bragging rights are on the line, as well as a trip to Indianapolis for the B1G Championship Game. For the Gophers, their Playoff hopes also hinge on the game.
Minnesota took home the Axe in 2018, pulling off a surprising and emphatic win in Madison. However, the Gophers have not secured back-to-back wins in the series since 1993-94. Wisconsin had won 14 straight in the rivalry before last year’s loss. Minnesota has just three wins against the Badgers since 2000.
Ahead of Saturday’s big-time contest and the first-ever appearance by ESPN’s College GameDay in Minneapolis, one fan dropped a legit hype video for the weekend. Ben Krych shared the video on Twitter that featured a unique Minnesota-themed song from White Coconut Johnson.
Needless to say, it’s a spot-on way for Gopher fans to get ready for the weekend:
