Perhaps the biggest game of the weekend will take place in Minneapolis. On Saturday, the Wisconsin Badgers will face the Minnesota Golden Gophers with a trip to the Big Ten Championship on the line.

Wisconsin is usually in the mix to win the Big Ten West, meanwhile Minnesota is enjoying its best season since 2003. Head coach P.J. Fleck has done an incredible job turning the program around.

Last season, the Golden Gophers stunned the Badgers to win Paul Bunyan's Axe.

In addition to revenge being a factor for Wisconsin, the team is also trying to clinch a spot in the conference championship. On the flip side, Minnesota is hoping to keep its slim hopes of making the College Football Playoff alive with another victory.

Here are the details for the Minnesota-Wisconsin game:

Game Time: 3:30 p.m. ET

Channel: ABC

Spread: Wisconsin -2.5

Over/Under: 46.5

Announcers: Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit, Maria Taylor

ESPN's College GameDay crew will be at TCF Bank Stadium for this game. It's the first time in the show's history that it'll be in Minneapolis.

Minnesota is undefeated at home this season, which is definitely worth noting for this matchup. It's also important to remember that both of Wisconsin's losses this year occurred on the road.

Will the Golden Gophers clinch a spot in the Big Ten Championship, or will the Badgers strike back on Saturday?
