Gophers can’t bring the Axe back to Dinkytown.
Did you realize NOT ONE team in the NFC North won a game yesterday?
More than 53,000 fans filled TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis for the coldest game of the season. Temperatures were in the teens, but it felt like five degrees outside thanks to the wind chill. Folks tailgating before the game set up tents, propane tanks and heat lamps to help stay warm, along with lots of hot food. No matter the conditions, Gopher and Badger fans didn’t let Mother Nature take away from the biggest border battle of the season.
James White rushed for 125 yards and a touchdown and No. 16 Wisconsin beat Minnesota for the 10th straight time in a 20-7 victory on Saturday. Jared Abbrederis had seven catches for 67 yards and a touchdown and Chris Borland recovered two fumbles and forced one to tie the NCAA record for career fumbles caused. After the game, the Badgers (9-2, 6-1 Big Ten) hoisted Paul Bunyan’s Axe and used it to chop the Gophers goal post when the time ran out.
Minnesota coach Jerry Kill is sticking with what works. Kill says he will remain in the coaching booth for the Golden Gophers’ game against No. 16 Wisconsin on Saturday.
With a 8-2 record and four-straight wins in the Big 10, the Gopher football has been the feel-good story of the fall. Now in year three of the Coach Jerry Kill era, the perception of the Gopher football program is changing. Gopher linebacker Damien Wilson says fans have been shocked by the team’s success. “They’re getting used to it,” Wilson said. “Everybody’s excited around here.”
Wisconsin left the WCHA with quite a souvenir. Now the Badgers need four more wins to get a bigger prize that seemed so improbable last month.
