NCAA Football: Wisconsin at Purdue Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

The 128th meeting between the Wisconsin Badgers and Minnesota Golden Gophers takes place in Madison on Saturday afternoon.

Wisconsin (7–4, 5–3 Big Ten) comes off last Saturday’s hard-fought, triple-overtime win over Purdue where Jonathan Taylor rushed for 321 yards on 33 carries with three touchdowns. Minnesota (5–6, 2–6) hopes to become bowl-eligible with a victory that would break a streak of 14 consecutive losses in this series.

The Badgers have scored at least 31 points or more in 13 of those 14 straight wins over the Gophers.

After last year’s 31–0 win in Minneapolis, Wisconsin leads the all-time series 60–59–8.
