The records: Gophers (8-2, 4-2 Big Ten) vs. Badgers (8-2, 5-1)
The rivalry: Wisconsin has won Paul Bunyan’s Axe nine years in a row and 18 of the past 22 years.
The stakes: The Gophers are still alive in the Legends Division race. Michigan State can seal it with a win over Northwestern, but if the Spartans lose, the Gophers would control their own destiny.
The stat: Wisconsin ranks sixth in the nation in rushing, at 307.9 yards per game.
The key: Minnesota has averaged 15.2 points during its nine-game losing streak against Wisconsin. The U might need to double that to win.
