When Kirk Cousins and Russell Wilson duel, it's must-see football. We learned that during the 2011 college football season, when Cousins (Michigan State) and Wilson (Wisconsin) traded dramatic hold-your-breath late wins.

Well, football fans are in for a treat, because the two quarterbacks meet tonight on Monday Night Football, as Cousins' Washington Redskins host Wilson's Seattle Seahawks, the reigning Super Bowl champs. Track the game here.

The winner will have the upper hand in the short but always entertaining head-to-head series.

Cousins won the first 2011 meeting, a regular-season affair at Spartan Stadium, that ended with him finding Keith Nichol on a last-second Hail Mary that had to be reviewed. Wilson got revenge a couple months later, guiding the Badgers to a late win in the inaugural Big Ten championship game.

Here's the Cousins-to-Nichol walk-off Hail Mary:

And highlights of the Wilson-led Big Ten title game win:

Wilson is ready for the game.
