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...

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.
