This probably isn't what Gophers fans want to hear after the mind-numbing fourth quarter at Wisconsin on Saturday. But offered for the 31-17 loss, the Gophers' 13th in a row to their border rival:

It was the first time the Gophers had led the Badgers in the fourth quarter in eight meetings.

In 2008, the Gophers also had a seven-point lead through three quarters at Camp Randall, before the Badgers scored the first 18 points of the fourth quarter, including two safeties in a 35-32 victory.

The following year saw the Badgers enter the fourth quarter up four. The teams traded touchdowns from there, but the Gophers never could go ahead and lost 31-28.

The games haven't been as close since then. 2010 marked the first of what's now six consecutive Wisconsin victories by double digits. That one was when Badgers coach Bret Bielema went for two with a 25-point lead in the fourth quarter, enraging Gophers coach Tim Brewster.

Bielema and Brewster are both long gone, but the Gophers' losing streak to the Badgers remains.
