The Wisconsin Badgers look to clinch a berth in the Big Ten title game for the second time in three seasons when they take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers for Paul Bunyan’s Axe on Saturday.

The Badgers (9–2, 6–2 Big Ten) punch their ticket to Indianapolis with a win over Minnesota or a Nebraska loss to Iowa on Friday. Wisconsin has won five straight games since suffering their only two losses to Michigan and Ohio State in consecutive weeks in October.

The Gophers (8–3, 5–3 Big Ten) have won three of their last four games and are looking to win six Big Ten games in a season for the first time since the 1973 season.

Wisconsin and Minnesota meet for the 126th time, which makes it the most-played rivalry in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

Minnesota leads the series 59–58–8, but the Badgers have won the last 12 in the series.
