Wisconsin Football: Nittany Lions spoil Badgers BCS hopes

Wisconsin football was ranked No.15 in the BCS before playing Saturday, one spot away from reaching a BCS bowl at-large bid. All the Badgers needed to do was come out with a victory over Penn State and their hopes and dreams of playing in the Orange Bowl in Miami, Florida would come true. Very disappointingly, Wisconsin let those hopes and dreams slip right through their fingers...

Wisconsin Football: BCS hope for Badgers

Just two weeks after being stuck in neutral in the BCS Standings, Wisconsin football suddenly has very realistic hopes of earning a BCS at-large bid.

Badgers report card: Wisconsin chugs on against improved Gophers

In the end, Minnesota's football team caught a rare glimpse of Paul Bunyan's Axe on Saturday -- but only from a distance, while Wisconsin was busy parading it around TCF Bank Stadium after another victory. BCS No. 19 Wisconsin handled No. 25 Minnesota 20-7 to capture its 10th consecutive border battle. And the rivalry proved to be as heated as ever, particularly after the...

WATCH: Minnesota and Wisconsin in altercation over Bunyan's axe

Wisconsin and Minnesota spent 60 minutes slugging it out on the football field earlier this afternoon. But the battle apparently didn’t end when the final buzzer sounded. The Badgers and Golden Gophers play for a trophy known as Paul Bunyan’s Axe, and yes, the trophy is literally a gigantic axe. It’s tradition for the winner to parade around with the axe and eventually pretend...

Referees cost Wisconsin against ASU in controversial ending

In over a decade of watching football, both collegiate and professional, I am not sure if I have ever seen a mistake like this. Yes, you could point to mistakes like last year’s Green Bay Packers vs Seattle Seahawks game where the referees blew the games.
