Border Battle

Border Battle Begins Year 11

Current results and Border Battle schedule

Year 11 of the annual Border Battle competition between the athletic programs for Wisconsin and Minnesota sees the Gophers with the lead. Minnesota has won the last two years and holds a slight 6-4 edge.

Many of the series have been close with just 10 points giving Wisconsin the edge in 2007. In the eighth season, the Badgers swept the last three Big Ten Championships to come from behind to win the trophy 455-425. That victory tied the series which dates back to 2004-05 at four wins apiece.

In the 11 sports which compete in head-to-head competition, 40 points are at stake. If the teams meet just once annually (football as an example), then the winner gets 40 points and the loser gets zero. If the teams meet twice (women's basketball, for example), the winner of each game gets 20 points and the losers get zero. If the teams meet four times (men's hockey for example), then the winner of each game gets 10 points and the loser gets zero. If a game ends in a tie, the points are split (20 to each school).

Where team scoring is dependent upon tournament outcomes, 40 points is awarded to the higher finishing school at the Big Ten championship. This affects the sports of men's and women's cross country, swimming and diving, golf, indoor track and outdoor track and women's rowing.
