The Gopher Football team will host Wisconsin Saturday in the battle for Paul Bunyan's Axe.  Minnesota is ranked #9 while Wisconsin is ranked #14.  The winner will get Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship and the Gopher could, at worst, secure a spot in the Rose Bowl.  Jim Souhan sees no reason why Minnesota can't win this game.

 

The Vikings are likely to get Adam Theilen back this week after he's missed some time with a hamstring injury.  The Vikings play at Seattle Monday night.  Jim has been impressed with Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson.  He says Wilson is neck and neck with Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson for the MVP.
