Whats bigger than homecoming, bigger than the season opener, and almost as big as my love of Eric Decker? The Gophers-Badgers rivalry game that's what! This Saturday at TCF Bank Stadium the Minnesota Golden Gophers take on the Wisconsin Badgers in a border war like no other... because just a mere two days later the Minnesota Vikings take on the Green Bay Packers at the Metrodome... Could the Minnesota-Wisconsin rivalry be any better this year??
On Saturday you can look forward to Adam Weber starting and playing most of the game throwing to Eric Decker as much as possible. Also look for Duane Bennett to post huge rushing yards.
The University of Minnesota has put out a statement that they want all fans to wear Gold and block out the Red for the first Badgers-Gophers rivalry game at TCF Bank Stadium. Gophers fans are to skip the maroon this week and go Gold for lets hope a BIG victory over the Badgers.
If you are like me and won't actually be at the game, throw your gold gear on anyway and head to a sports bar or a friends couch and catch the game on TV or radio!
Get Em Gophers!
