Minnesota leads Wisconsin 17-10 after three quarters and is threatening to ruin the Badgers' playoff hopes. Wisconsin QB Alex Hornibrook has been knocked out of the game, so it will be up to Bart Houston to rally the team late. Minnesota QB Mitch Leidner has been solid today, other than an interception thrown in the end zone. Minnesota has lost 12 consecutive games in this series, so a victory today would be extra sweet.

Minnesota leads No. 6 Wisconsin 17-7 at halftime from Camp Randall Stadium. This is a pretty surprising score considering the Badgers have won 12 consecutive games in the series and are battling for a potential playoff spot. The Gophers have been the better team all half and trailed for only 14 seconds. A big key has been Gophers QB Mitch Leidner, who has nine rushes for 60 yards and a touchdown. He entered the day averaging 29.4 rushing yards per game.

Good afternoon from Camp Randall Stadium, where No. 6 Wisconsin plays host to Minnesota. The Badgers clinched the Big Ten West title with Nebraska's loss to Iowa yesterday, but there is so much more at stake. Wisconsin is trying to keep its College Football Playoff hopes alive and win Paul Bunyan's Axe for a 13th consecutive game against the Gophers.
