>>Packers Welcome Group Of First Responders, Health Care Workers To Panthers Game
(Green Bay, WI) — The Green Bay Packers will welcome a group of first responders and health care workers to Saturday’s home game against the Panthers. About 250 frontline workers will be joined by family members in socially-distanced seating. Packers officials say it’s a sign of appreciation for the groups’ work during the coronavirus pandemic. The team has been allowing some of its own employees to attend games but has never had more than a few hundred people in Lambeau Field’s more than 81-thousand seats. This is only the third Saturday game for the Packers since 1998. Green Bay has won five of its last six regular-season games played on a Saturday.
>>Battle For Paul Bunyan’s Axe Comes A Few Weeks Late This Season
(Madison, WI) — Players on both sides of the border say they are glad the pandemic didn’t wipe out the Gopher-Badger rivalry game. It’s just being played a few later than it was originally scheduled. The 3-and-3 Minnesota Gophers meet the 2-and-3 Wisconsin Badgers at Camp Randall Stadium Saturday afternoon at 3:00 p-m. The most-played Football Bowl Subdivision rivalry game was originally on the calendar for November 28th before cases of COVID-19 forced its postponement. This will be the 130th meeting between the two schools. Neither team has had the success that was expected, but both sides say they are happy to battle for Paul Bunyan’s Axe.
>>Short-Handed Louisville Meets Badgers In Kohl Center Saturday
(Madison, WI) — The Louisville Cardinals will be missing a few players when they meet Wisconsin at the Kohl Center Saturday morning. Contact tracing efforts inside his program means head coach Chris Mack is expecting to have only “seven or eight” scholarship players available. The Cardinals paused all team activities on December 3rd, canceling a game against UNC-Greensboro and moving the Badger game that is part of the ACC-Big Ten Challenge. Tipoff Saturday morning is at 11:00. Louisville has 12 scholarship players on its team, but only nine have been available at one time so far this season. The last game the Cardinals played was December 1st against Western Kentucky.
>>Holiday Going Home For 1 Preseason Game In New Orleans
(New Orleans, LA) — Three-and-a-half weeks after he was traded, Bucks guard Jrue Holiday is going home for tonight’s (Friday’s) preseason game in New Orleans. For seven years he played All-Star-level basketball for the Pelicans. Holiday is expected to bring a more dynamic offense to Milwaukee than Eric Bledsoe. He’s also a strong defender. He says he wants to grow with the Bucks, who are still looking for their first preseason win – and their first appearance in the NBA finals in almost five decades. Tipoff tonight at the Smoothie King Center is 7:00 p-m. Milwaukee starts the 72-game regular-season schedule next Wednesday in Boston.
