Wisconsin football game Saturday against Minnesota cancelled

The Axe game scheduled for Saturday between the Badgers and Gophers has been called off due to COVID-19 concerns.

According to a release from Minnesota, the team is pausing all team-related activities as it responds to rising COVID-19 cases in its program.

The game will be ruled a no-contest.

It's the first time since 1906 that the game won't be played.

Minnesota has reported 15 positive COVID-19 cases in the past five days, with more presumptive positive tests, they said.

With the cancellation, Wisconsin is no longer be eligible for the Big Ten Championship, because they won't have played enough games.
