Gophers, Badgers battle for Paul Bunyan's Axe

One of the oldest rivalries in college football comes to TCF Bank Stadium Saturday as the Minnesota Gophers battle Big Ten rival Wisconsin for the chance to wield Paul Bunyan's Axe.

The axe has eluded Minnesota every year since 2004. Also on the line for the Gophers on Saturday? A chance to play in a bowl game this season. A win would make them bowl eligible for the fourth season in a row.

The rivalry between the two schools played out on social media this week, dubbed Axe Week by fans. Here are some of the best back-and-forths between the school's mascots.
