This legendary matchup, with 128 meetings since 1890, is the most-played rivalry in the history of NCAA Division I football. The teams are tied with 60 wins each in the rivalry, and eight tied games. They last faced off one year ago Sunday, when the Gophers won 37 to 15.
The game has high stakes, too. The winner will represent the West against Ohio State in the Big Ten Football Championship Game on Dec. 7.
The Gophers are currently leading the Big Ten West with a record of 10-1. They most recently set the college sports world ablaze with their win over Penn State earlier this month — which put them at 9-0 for the first time in 115 years.
The Gophers-Badgers matchup will begin at 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 30.
