Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Paul Bunyan Axe

Rival Team: Minnesota Gophers

The Badgers and Minnesota have battled for the ‘Paul Bunyan Axe” almost every year since 1890

Heartland Trophy

Rival Team: Iowa Hawkeyes

The Badgers have battled the fellow Big Ten Rival, the Iowa Hawkeyes for the Heartland Trophy for almost every year for over 100 years. They battle over a ‘gold pig statue,' but it’s the commonalities b/w the two programs and the fans that make this rivalry special.

Wisconsin vs Lions/Spartans/Buckeyes

Rival Team: Penn State Lions, Michigan State Spartans, Ohio State Buckeyes

Badger fans love their Big Ten football, so when any of the routine powerhouses come into town, it always makes for an awesome, hard-hitting, and usually very close game. These three teams often get picked for the night game, so if they’re scheduled w/ a “TBD” and it’s mid-October (before it gets cold!), we highly recommend these games.
