The Badgers face the Gophers for the Axe on Senior day this Saturday at the Camp, 2:30 pm.   Let’s send the seniors off proudly with a 15th straight win over the ground squirrels.  The Badgers enter the game with a 6-4 overall record while the Gophers are 5-6 overall.  Minnesota needs a win to be bowl eligible.  Minnesota’s head coach is P.J. Fleck who is in his 2nd season.  He is the former head coach of the Western Michigan Broncos and had his playing career at Northern Illinois (wide receiver).  The Badgers have won this border rivalry 14 years in a row and hope to retain Paul Bunyon’s Axe this Saturday in the battle for the Axe.  It is the most played rivalry in the NCAA Division 1 Football Bowl Subdivision with 127 meetings between the two teams.   Wisconsin leads the series60-59-8.  Founded in 1882, the Minnesota program is one of the oldest in college football.   Minnesota has been a member of the Big Ten Conference since its inception in 1896 as the Western Conference.  Their mascot is “Goldy Gopher”
