>>Badgers Welcome Maryland To Kohl Center For Big Ten Conference Game
(Madison, WI) — The Wisconsin Badgers will put their seven-game homecourt winning streak on the line when Maryland visits tonight (Monday). The Terrapins are still looking for their first conference win. Wisconsin has a four-game winning streak against the Terps. It will likely come down to the defensive effort for the visitors. They are undefeated when they hold opponents below 43-percent shooting. It has been nearly four years since a Maryland team won a game played at the Kohl Center in Madison. The veteran Wisconsin team makes very few turnovers, averaging just one in every eight positions – the second-best rate in the country. Tipoff time is 6 PM, coverage starts at 5 on KFIZ.
>>A Pair Of .500 Teams Meet In Duke’s Mayo Bowl Wednesday
(Charlotte, NC) — When Wake Forest meets the Badgers in Wednesday’s Duke’s Mayo Bowl in Charlotte it will be a couple of teams trying to end disappointing seasons on a high note. Both the Demon Deacons (4-and-4) and Wisconsin (3-and-3) won just half of their starts this season and both had issues with COVID-19 forcing the cancellation of some games. The Badgers led the nation in time of possession again and they will try to take advantage of a weak Wake Forest defense. Although they were good and forcing turnovers, Wake ranked 107th in passing defense, 90th in rushing defense and 107th in total defense. Wake Forest does have a strong offense. Kick-off from Bank of America Stadium will be at 11:00 a-m.
