Minnesota has dropped 12 straight to archrival Wisconsin, but Gophers linebacker Jack Lynn expects the streak to end Nov. 26 in Madison. "We should get it this year," Lynn said. "There's no reason why we can't do it. The way we're working, we're quiet about it, but I can feel it with this team more than any other team that we will be successful."
