>>OT Jared Veldheer Makes History By Signing With Packers
(Green Bay, WI) — Veteran offensive tackle Jared Veldheer is making NFL history by signing with the Green Bay Packers. With All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari sidelined with a knee injury, the Packers are bringing the 33-year-old Veldheer on board for some offensive line depth. He could start Saturday against the Rams, but that’s not official yet. The Packers picked him up after Indianapolis lost its wild-card playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens last weekend. That means Veldheer will become the first player in league history to play postseason games for two different playoff teams in the same season. Veldheer also started for the Packers at tackle in last year’s NFC divisional playoff win over Seattle when Green Bay brought him out of retirement. The Colts also signed him out of retirement when they added him to the practice squad in December.
>>More Badgers Football Players Using Extra Year Of Eligibility To Return In 2021
(Madison, WI) — Outside linebacker Noah Burks has told his coaches he will return to play for the Badgers next season. Burks had an interception in Wisconsin’s 42-28 bowl game victory over Wake Forest. That means defensive coordinator Jim Leonhard will have four starting linebackers returning next season – helping fill the void after members of the defensive line decided to move on. Burks, Nick Herbig, Leo Chenal, and Jack Sanborn have all committed to play another season under the expanded eligibility rules put in place by the NCAA. Offensive tackle Cole Van Lanen has announced this week his plans to enter the NFL Draft and give up his extra year.
>>No Easy Games In Big Ten – Michigan Waits For Badgers’ Visit
(Ann Arbor, MI) — Big Ten Conference-leading Michigan waits for the Wisconsin Badgers to visit the Crisler Center tonight (Tuesday). The Wolverines didn’t get much preseason attention, but they’ve started with 10 straight victories and moved up into seventh place in this week’s Associated Press poll. Tip-off time in Ann Arbor is 6:00 p-m. The Badgers have the most experienced team in Division One basketball, but the Wolverines are led in scoring by freshman Hunter Dickson, who’s averaging 18 points-a-game and hitting 73-percent of his shots. Wisconsin brings a 10-and-2 record into the contest, including 4-and-1 in conference games. D’Mitrik Trice is leading the Badgers in scoring with almost 15 points-a-game.
>>Even Match-Up Expected As Providence Friars Take On Marquette
(Milwaukee, WI) — There’s no real favorite when the Providence Friars take on Marquette tonight (Tuesday) at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee. The two Big East teams have evenly split the last 10 meetings. Providence is 7-and-5 overall, with a 3-and-3 record in conference. The Golden Eagles are 6-and-6, but just 2-and-4 in conference games. Junior guard David Duke carries most of the offense for the Friars, averaging a little over 20 points and nearly four-and-a-half assists-a-game. Freshman forward Dawson Garcia is doing a lot of the damage for Marquette, averaging 13 points and just over seven-and-a-half rebounds-a-game.
