Mike Lucas offers his thoughts on Wisconsin's 37-15 defeat at the hands of Minnesota on Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium.
"In any game, rivalry or otherwise, one statistical category holds true: takeaways. The Gophers had the second most turnovers (25) in the B10 & a minus-9 margin. Yet they played a clean game & capitalized on 4 UW mistakes (3 picks and a lost fumble) which was their path to the Axe"
"Not unlike the BYU loss, the Badgers got beat in an uncharacteristic area of the game: the line of scrimmage where the Gophers were more physical from start to finish on both sides of the ball borrowing a formula that has worked well with in this series for the last 14 seasons"
