Now Playing Tracks

Normally, when this blog covers college football, it’s all things Fighting Irish…BUT…today Minnesota plays Wisconsin for Paul Bunyan’s Axe, which may be my favorite “trophy” game.  It’s a giant axe…you  can chop stuff with it…and a replica Paul Bunyan’s Axe was just outside my office door when I worked at the College Football Hall of Fame.

Before the axe though, Wisconsin and Minnesota played for the slab o’ bacon trophy (pictured above) until Wisconsin lost the trophy.  Playing a football game for a bacon trophy?  I fully endorse that.

Go Gophers!
