per Eleven Warriors:

WISCONSIN VS. MINNESOTA
Wisconsin has dominated the Big Ten West Division, advancing to the title game in four of the last six seasons.

The Badgers prime competition during that time has been Iowa, which got to the conference title game in 2015. Then there was the strange 2018 season in which an unranked 8-4 Northwestern team reached Indianapolis.

But this year's West Division title race looks like it could come down to the Wisconsin - Minnesota matchup.

The Gophers were 10-1 when they hosted Wisconsin for what turned out to be a play-in game for the conference championship last November. The Badgers prevailed 38-17, but Minnesota is poised to make another run with quarterback Tanner Morgan returning.

Morgan was one of the most efficient quarterbacks in the country running head coach P.J. Fleck's system. He threw for 3,253 yards and 30 touchdowns against just seven interceptions. He'll be facing off against a Wisconsin team trying to replace one of college football's most productive running backs in Jonathan Taylor.


Go Gophers!!
