Kill attends Border Battle for the Axe

It all comes down to today, Gopher Nation.

The Minnesota Golden Gophers face the Wisconsin Badgers today at TCF Stadium in the final regular season game for both teams. At stake: border battle bragging rights and possession of Paul Bunyan's Axe. That's in addition to a possible bowl bid for the hometown team.

It's been a season of turmoil for the Gophers, one that started with expectations that the program would take a big step forward after making it to a New Year's Day bowl last season. However, injuries…missed opportunities, and most critically…the retirement of Coach Jerry Kill for health reasons all resulted in something of a lost season for the Gophers.

Former Coach Kill is at TCF Stadium for today's game, the first time he has been on site for a game since his retirement.

With a win today, the Gophers would win their sixth game of the season and be bowl-eligible. The Badgers, who fell out the Top 25 with a last minute loss last week, already are eligible for a bowl.

Game time is 2:30pm at TCF Stadium in Minneapolis.
