Wisconsin and Minnesota will face off Saturday afternoon in one of the oldest rivalries in all of college football.

The game also has one of the best trophies in all of sports: Paul Bunyan’s ax. Wisconsin, who is currently 11-0, released a hype video ahead of the game, and it’s absolutely worth checking out if you’re a football fan.

The start of the video resembles more of a horror film than a football hype tape, which makes sense considering Wisconsin has a rich history of slaughtering Minnesota on the football field.

There aren’t too many things better than college football games in late November, especially in the Big Ten. The temps are cold, the fanbases are amped and everything is on the line.

Of course, the Badgers are going to obliterate Minnesota tomorrow. The game won’t even be close. I’ve seen spreads nearing -20 for Wisconsin. It’s going to be an absolute bloodbath, and I can’t wait to watch every second of it go down.
