Border Battle against the Badgers and Gophers

(WNFL) - Minnesota football coach Jerry Kill says he won't mess with success -- especially during Saturday's Border Battle against the Wisconsin Badgers in Minneapolis.  Kill says he'll run the show from high above the field in a booth at T-C-F Bank Stadium -- just like he's done the past four weeks, when his Gophers won all those games.  Kill took a leave of absence at the start of the season to deal with his epilepsy.  When he returned, he continued to let defensive coordinator Tracy Claeys manage things on the field while he called shots from the booth.  That worked for Minnesota's victories over Northwestern, Nebraska, Indiana, and Penn State.  It was the first time since 1973 that the Gophers won four straight in Big Ten conference play.  Saturday's contest is the biggest in Kill's three years as Minnesota's coach.  Both teams are 8-and-2 overall, and the Badgers are one game ahead of the Gophers at 5-and-1 in Big Ten play.  Minnesota hopes to win back Paul Bunyan's Axe, which has been in Madison since 2004 as the 16th-ranked Badgers have won nine straight over their rivals to the west.
