118th meeting of the Badgers and Gophers


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- When Minnesota visits Wisconsin tomorrow, it will be the 118th meeting for Paul Bunyan's Axe.

  And there's no shortage of frosty feelings between the programs and coaches that have played the most times in the history of Division I football.

  Adam Weber picked Minnesota over Wisconsin.

  David Gilreath ran an end around the Gophers to play for the Badgers. Kim Royston transferred from one school to the other.

  The Badgers (5-5, 2-5) are fighting for bowl eligibility with FCS school Cal Poly remaining on the schedule.

  Even with two straight losses, Minnesota (7-3, 3-3 Big Ten) is the feel-good story in the conference after last year's disastrous 1-11 campaign.
