Welcome to the Gameday Blog for coverage of today's Border Battle matchup between the 20th-ranked Badgers and Minnesota, live from Camp Randall Stadium.

Brian Mason: 
We're just under a half-hour out from kickoff, and the Badgers have just made their way off the field to head back to the locker room.

Brian Mason: 
Both teams enter today's game coming off a loss last week, with the Badgers looking to bounce back from their loss at Michigan State and Minnesota attempting to shake a four-game losing skid.

Brian Mason: 
All four of Minnesota's losses have come at home, so maybe a change of scenery is a welcome sight for the Gophers.

Time for the annual cane toss on the field ... members of the Wisconsin Law School class of 2011 run the length of the field and throw a cane over the goalpost in the south end zone, attempting to catch it on the way down.

It's a perfect day at Camp Randall. Temp is at 71 right now, with a high in the low 80s expected. There's absolutely no wind and not a cloud in the sky.

Brian Mason: 
The last few meetings in this series have been down-to-the-wire affairs, with three points deciding each of the last two games. UW scored a 35-32 win at Camp Randall in 2008 and then won, 31-28, last season in Minneapolis.
Saturday October 9, 2010 10:40 Brian Mason
10:41
Brian Mason: 
That total of 31 points in last year's game is the lowest winning score in the Badgers' current six-game win streak. UW has scored more than 38 points in four of those games.

Brian Mason: 
The UW Marching Band has taken the field for its pregame show.
Saturday October 9, 2010 10:43 Brian Mason
10:46
Brian Mason: 
Among the things to watch for today is the Badgers' running back rotation. John Clay ranks No. 2 in the Big Ten this season with 581 yards, but true freshman James White has continued to improve each week. The coaching staff wants to find a way to get White more touches, as the two have proven to be a great 1-2 punch.
Saturday October 9, 2010 10:46 Brian Mason
10:46
Brian Mason: 
Both Clay and White have 6 touchdowns on the season
Saturday October 9, 2010 10:46 Brian Mason
10:46
Brian Mason: 
White, of course, had four against Austin Peay and then scored a pair against Michigan State in last week's Big Ten opener.

does the crowd looked pumped?

Brian Mason: 
A rather late-arriving crowd, which is somewhat understandable with the 11 a.m. start. I can tell you that there are plenty of pumped-up people in the neighborhood. Regent Street and every parking lot in sight were pretty well jammed with fans when I made the walk to the stadium earlier this morning.

Basically, "getting away from what works" was the errant 3rd-down pass from Tolzien that led to the 3-and-out. There was certainly nothing wrong with what the Badgers did systematically on offense. I can assure you the Badgers have not abandoned the run.

What they need is for the defense to get Minnesota off the field so they can put together another long, sustained drive. Monopolizing the clock is how they assert dominance -- exactly like the Gophers did late in the half .

To a degree it is an issue. You know you have playmakers at several positions -- including some real depth at some of those. That gives you plenty of play calls to feel comfortable in. Still, I don't think you'll see this team getting away from the run.

JJ Watt effective today?
Saturday October 9, 2010 12:29 TD
12:31
Brian Mason: 
As always, with 4 tackles so far. The Gophers have largely kept him out of the backfield, though. I'll be watching that more closely in the seocnd half. Not sure if he's being double-teamed or if the Gophers are focusing in specifically on him. At the other DE spot, Nzegwu has been active with applying pressure against the run and pass.
