Wis­con­sin 31, Min­nesota 17

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SPORTS -

Corey Cle­ment ran for two fourthquar­ter touch­downs, a big­play de­fense pitched a sec­ond-half shutout, and Wis­con­sin beat Min­nesota for its 13th straight win in the an­nual bor­der ri­valry.

The Badgers tri­umphantly lifted Paul Bun­yan’s Axe again, the tro­phy that goes to the vic­tor in the most-played ri­valry in ma­jor col­lege foot­ball.

Wis­con­sin (10-3, 7-2 Big Ten, No. 6 CFP) turned in a stal­wart de­fen­sive ef­fort in the sec­ond half af­ter get­ting out­played in the first and fall­ing be­hind by 10 points at half­time.

The come­back served as an ex­cla­ma­tion point for an al­ready mo­men­tous week­end. Wis­con­sin had wrapped up the Big Ten West and a spit in the league title game af­ter Ne­braska lost to Iowa on Fri­day night.

Mitch Lei­d­ner threw four in­ter­cep­tions in the sec­ond half for Min­nesota (8-4, 5-4).
