>>#10 Wisconsin Football at #19 Northwestern

(Evanston, IL) —  The number-ten Wisconsin Badgers look for their third win of the Big Ten football season today (Saturday 2:30 p-m) at 19th-ranked Northwestern.  It has been nearly 60 years since the Badgers last faced the Wildcats when both teams were ranked in the top 20.  Northwestern leads the West Division with a 4-and-oh record. Wisconsin quarterback Graham Mertz is off to an impressive start with 375 yards, seven passing touchdowns and zero interceptions in two games.  Northwestern head coach Pat Fitzgerald thinks defense will decide this game. The Badgers have the top defense in the Big Ten and the Wildcats are a close second. Listen to the game at 12:30 on KFIZ. 

>> Green Bay Packers at Indianapolis Colts Sunday

(Indianapolis, IN)  —  The 7-and-2 Green Bay Packers take on the 6-and-3 Indianapolis Colts Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium.  Wide receiver Davante Adams is expected to play with a sore ankle and cornerback Kevin King returns after missing five games with a quad injury.  The Colts have the number-one defense in the NFL – with 11 interceptions, six forced fumbles, 21 sacks and 54 tackles for a loss.  Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said the Colts have a “smart” defense.  Around 12-thousand-500 fans will be in the stadium to watch the matchup of division leaders.

>>Packers Hall of Famer Paul Hornung Laid to Rest in Kentucky

(Louisville, KY)  —  Family and friends are honoring the life of Packers Hall of Fame running back Paul Hornung.  His friend Brian Hale said Hornung provided a playbook for everyone on how to live, enjoy and thrive.  The Heisman Trophy winner, Pro Football and College Football Hall of Famer died last week at the age of 84 after a lengthy battle with dementia.  His funeral was Friday at St. Louis Bertrand Catholic Church in Louisville.  The Packers drafted Hornung number-one overall in 1957  out of Notre Dame.  A public celebration of his life will be held at a later date.

>>Both Bucks Draft Picks Come To Milwaukee With Strong Shooting Credentials

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Rookies Jordan Nwora and Sam Merrill come to the Milwaukee Bucks with impeccable shooting credentials.  Their defensive abilities will be questioned until they are able to prove themselves.  The six-foot-five Merrill from Utah State was actually drafted by New Orleans, but he becomes a Buck as part of the Jrue Holiday trade.  He averaged almost 20 points-a-game as a senior, hitting 41-percent of his 3-point shots and 89-percent of his free throws.  The Bucks are hoping Nwora and Merrill can make the roster, then shoot well enough to open things up even more for Giannis Antetokounmpo in the team’s fast-paced offense.
