Minnesota Football: RoWINg to Wisconsin - Opponent Preview

The Minnesota Golden Gophers (7-4) wrap up the regular season by hosting the Wisconsin Badgers (8-3) on Saturday in their annual border battle for possession of Paul Bunyan’s Axe.

Can Wisconsin score on offense?

The Badgers have a freshman sensation at running back in Braelon Allen, who has rushed for 100+ yards in seven consecutive games and is currently averaging 7.6 yards per carry. He has benefitted from improved play up front by a Wisconsin offensive line that struggled early in the season, but Allen also brings to the table an elite combination of size, strength, and speed.
