Sports Headlines:

>>Badgers FINALLY Back On The Field For Football

(Madison, WI)  —  No “Jump Around,” no marching band, no roaring crowd – but football returns to Camp Randall Stadium tonight (Friday).  Kickoff for the much-delayed first game of the 2020 season is set for 7:00 p-m.  Wisconsin is a 19-and-a-half-point favorite over Illinois – the team that upset the Badgers last year.  Wisconsin will be playing without graduating stars like Jonathan Taylor, Quintez Cephus, Chris Orr, Tyler Biadasz, Zach Baun — and this year’s injured starting quarterback Jack Coan.  The game gives redshirt freshman quarterback Graham Mertz a chance to live up to the hype and U-W defensive coordinator Jim Leonhard the opportunity to enhance his national reputation for creating effective defenses.  The Badgers say they’re not looking for revenge for last year’s 24-23 defeat, but you can bet all the players remember it.

>>Wisconsin HS Sports Not Spreading COVID-19

(Madison, WI)  —  A study by the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health indicates high school sports isn’t responsible for the spread of COVID-19.  Researchers worked with the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association and the more than 200 schools that responded to a survey.  Of the 209 athletes who know how they got the virus, only one said it happened while participating in sports activities.  In more than half the cases, the source was contact at home and 85 students reported the source was community contact – not at school.  The COVID-19 case rate among athletes was well below reports from the Department of Health Services for Wisconsin residents 14-to-17 years old.

>>Packers Considering Options For Left Tackle

(Green Bay, WI)  —  With Sunday’s game at Houston fast approaching, the Green Bay Packers are considering their options for the all-important left tackle position.  All-Pro David Bakhtiari missed both practices this week with a chest injury suffered in the loss at Tampa Bay.  Rick Wagner took Bakhtiari’s place in that game and struggled, giving up a sack and a tackle-for-loss.  The Packers might be tempted to put second-year lineman Elgton Jenkins in the position.  He’s been a breakout star on the offensive line.  The most likely option will be to move starting right tackle, Billy Turner, to the left tackle spot.  Wagner would take over at right tackle.  Of course, Bakhtiari hasn’t been officially ruled out for the Texans game yet.
