The game time for Saturday's football game between the Gophers and Wisconsin finally was announced this morning. The teams will play at 2:30 p.m.

It took this long to decide because of television. The game will be televised on ESPN.

Both teams are 8-2. They play for Paul Bunyan's Axe, and the Gophers are looking to claim it for the first time since 2003.

TOP 25 UPDATE

The Gophers moved to No. 23, up two spots from last week, in this week's USA Today Coaches Poll, but Minnesota has yet to crack the Associated Press Top 25.

The Gophers received enough votes to sit at No. 26 in the AP poll, behind USC (No. 23), Ole Miss (No. 24) and Duke (No. 25).

The Badgers are at No. 16 in the AP poll and No. 17 in the Coaches Poll.
