The stakes for the for the 129th edition of the game could not be higher, as the winner will represent the West against Ohio State in the Big Ten Football Championship Game on Dec. 7. The all-time series between Minnesota and Wisconsin is tied 60-60-8 after the Gophers won 37-15 last year on the road to reclaim Paul Bunyan’s Axe.
