MADISON, Wis. -- The Big Ten Network is scheduled to air Wisconsin's Homecoming game against Border Battle-rival Minnesota on Oct. 9, the Big Ten announced on Monday. The battle for Paul Bunyan's Axe is slated for an 11 a.m. (CT) kickoff at Camp Randall Stadium.

The Badgers are looking for their seventh-consecutive win against the Gophers, which would be the longest winning streak in the series for either team since the Axe was introduced in 1948. Wisconsin has previously won six in a row from 1978-83 and from 1995-2000.

Before the homecoming showdown, Wisconsin opens its Big Ten schedule at Michigan State on Oct. 2. That game airs live on ABC at 2:30 p.m. (CT).
