Video: Minnesota Fan Recreates 'Miracle' Speech With LEGO, Except With Gophers Beating Badgers


There isn't a lot of love lost between Wisconsin and Minnesota. The two programs don't like each other one bit, and this week, the Badgers and Golden Gophers square off in a big matchup of ranked teams at TCF Bank Stadium.

I can only hope to hear that this makes its way to the Minnesota locker room, and that the players find it extremely motivating. The Wisconsin-Minnesota game will air on ESPN at 3:30 EST on Saturday.
