Wisconsin's Twitter Account Roasted Minnesota Ahead Of Their Big Rivalry Game Saturday

Wisconsin and Minnesota have one of the most even rivalries in college football, but lately it's been all Badgers.

Minnesota officially leads Wisconsin in their rivalry series by one game, with a 59-58-8 mark. But as we all know, the Badgers have absolutely dominated the rivalry in the 21st century. Wisconsin has only lost to Minnesota twice since 2001, and the last Golden Gophers victory came back in 2003.

..which, of course, is before social media really existed. Whoever runs Wisconsin's official Twitter account had some fun with that fact on Monday.

Can the Badgers tie up the rivalry series all-time? If so, they'll clinch the Big Ten West and find themselves in the league's title game next week.
