Badger fans are celebrating--the Paul Bunyan Axe is back, calling for a trip to the Big Ten Championship.

Wisconsin beat the Gophers in Minneapolis on Saturday, topping off rivalry week with a chance to win again in Indianapolis. Fans couldn't contain their excitement at Steny's Tavern in Walker's Point on Saturday.

"It's actually amazing because we lost at home last year, and that was a tough loss," said Badger fan Jack Behrend, whose sister is a Gopher fan.

"She was there to rub it in my face, so I am here to rub it in your face, too," he said.

The Minnesota Golden Gophers went into Saturday's match up with a nine and one record.

Ohio State remains undefeated in the regular season and won the Big Ten Championship last year.

However, many fans are skeptical that the Badgers will actually defeat the Buckeyes.

"If I'm being honest, I think Ohio State is one of the best college footabll teams ever," said Eric Natwick.

But some fans remaining are optimistic.

"I'm saying it right now, we'll beat Ohio State," said Adam Gruett.

The Wisconsin Badgers play Ohio State at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on December 7th. For more information, click here.
