Minnesota Football: Wisconsin wins Paul Bunyan’s Axe and the Big Ten West beating Minnesota 38-17

A windy and wet day at TCF Bank stadium saw the top two teams in the Big Ten West battle for Paul Bunyan’s Axe and the division championship. It was Wisconsin who dominated the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball and pulled away in the 4th quarter for a 38-17 win.

The Badgers took the opening kickoff and were stopped for a quick three and out. Minnesota then took possession near midfield and on second down Tanner Morgan hit Rashod Bateman for a 51-yard touchdown to take a quick 7-0 lead.
