Wisconsin vs Minnesota Live stream. Unbeaten Wisconsin aims to stay perfect vs Minnesota, Wisconsin vs. Minnesota: What to expect from the Gophers
Wisconsin’s lack of victories against other College Football Playoff contender could make perfection its only path to the final four. Ohio State will be a daunting opponent in the Big Ten title game next week, but the West Division champion Badgers must be careful not to get caught looking past Minnesota, which has lost 13 straight in the battle for Paul Bunyan’s Axe. Wisconsin (11-0, 8-0 Big Ten) is looking for its first unbeaten conference record in 105 years, when the team went 5-0 in Big Ten play back in 1912.
The Badgers are also looking to lead the the all-time series against Minnesota (5-6, 2-6) for the first time ever. The two programs have fought to a mark of 59-59-8. Minnesota is coming off a rough 39-0 loss at Northwestern last week and looking to become bowl eligible in P.J. Fleck’s first year as head coach.
The team is currently fourth in the Big Ten in rushing offense (190.5 yards per game) on the legs of Rodney Smith (895 yards, 4.2 yards per game) and Kobe McCrary (476 yards, 5.8 yards per carry, eight touchdowns). They have rushed for 409 yards against Nebraska, 292 versus Illinois and 227 against Purdue in Big Ten play. The offense is 10th in the conference in points per game scored (24.1), however.
