With their hopes for winning the Big Ten West taken away by Nebraska's fourth-quarter collapse against Iowa on Friday, the Gophers' attention turns to reclaiming Paul Bunyan's Axe from Wisconsin in today's game from Huntington Bank Stadium. Beating the favored Badgers would also improve Minnesota's standing when bowl game invitations are handed out next weekend.
