College GameDay will be making the trip to Minneapolis to see the No. 10 Minnesota Golden Gophers and the No. 12 Wisconsin Badgers battle for possession of Paul Bunyan’s Axe and a spot in the Big Ten Championship, where No. 2-ranked Ohio State awaits.

This will be College GameDay’s first ever visit to Minnesota.

The Gophers have won 10 games in the regular season for the first time since 1905 and are ranked in the Top 10 for the first time since 1962. The Badgers will look to spoil their season and exact revenge for last year’s 37-15 loss to Minnesota in Camp Randall.

It’s anyone’s guess who GameDay’s guest picker will be. When we polled our Twitter followers earlier in the season, names like Tony Dungy, Brock Lesnar, Eric Decker, and even Lizzo were put forth as possibilities. It will be interesting to see who actually gets the call.
