Minnesota sports rarity

A University of Minnesota Gophers football victory over the Wisconsin Badgers has been pretty rare over the past 25 years. But to prevail in the same week as a Vikings win over their Wisconsin counterparts? Has that ever happened?

Well, I did some research and it turns out that such an occurrence took place the same season of the last Gophs win in Camp Randall (before this past Saturday of course). It was 1994 when the Vikes beat the Packers on a Thursday night game on October 20, 1994 at the Metrodome. Two days later, the Gophers defeated Bucky on the road.

So Minnesota football fans witnessed something this past Saturday & Sunday which hadn't occurred in nearly a quarter century. Not a bad way to cap off a holiday weekend!
