Since 1890, the Golden Gophers and Badgers have faced each other in the annual game known as the Border Battle. Early teams competed for the coveted "Slab of Bacon" trophy until 1948, when the winning team would take home Paul Bunyan's Axe, a tradition that continues to this day. Images of Sports: Minnesota-Wisconsin College Football Rivalry features magnificent games through the years, plus stories and images of remarkable players and coaches.
