For pure spectacle, passion and tradition, nothing in sports beats a college football rivalry – and the Big Ten has some of the best.
The Racine Public Library will host a presentation and book signing by sports writer Todd Mishler author of Blood, Sweat and Cheers: Great Football Rivalries of the Big Ten on Wednesday, Dec. 19 at 7 p.m.
Whether it's reminiscing over Wisconsin and Minnesota's battle for Paul Bunyan's Axe, or rehashing Ohio State and Michigan scrapping for conference dominance, you'll discover the history, ritual and color of some of football's oldest and greatest blood feuds. Books will be available for purchase. The program is free and no registration is required; space is limited, however.
Wisconsin native Todd Mishler graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. He previously authored Cold Wars: 40+ Years of Packer-Viking Rivalry, Baseball in Beertown: America's Pastime in Milwaukee, and Great Moments in Wisconsin Sports.
