About this item

There are many great rivalries in Division I college football, but only one can say it has been played the longest: Minnesota and Wisconsin. 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. Included are the historic national championships, Rose Bowls, All-Americans, and even fantasy teams, plus the involvement of presidents Theodore Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy in this enduring football rivalry.
