J.J. Watt, Russell Wilson tweet their excitement after Wisconsin’s victory over Minnesota

Former Wisconsin stars J.J. Watt and Russell Wilson tweeted their support for the Badgers after the team’s 20-7 win over rival Minnesota.

Every year the winner of the Wisconsin-Minnesota game gets to hoist the massive Paul Bunyan Axe. The team then ceremoniously chops down the opponent’s goal post.

On Saturday, the Badgers dominated the Golden Golphers en route to a victory that wasn’t nearly as close as the final score reads. Wilson understood that extremely well.

It was the 10th consecutive rivalry win for Sconnie Nation, meaning, once again, the Axe stays exactly where it belongs.
