>>Some Fans Could Be Allowed In Lambeau Field For Last 2 Games
(Green Bay, WI) — Rumblings out of Green Bay suggest the NFL team is going to allow an unspecified number of fans inside Lambeau Field for the last two home games of the season. Those games would be December 19th against Carolina and December 27th against Tennessee. No final decision has been formally announced. The Packers have been testing COVID-19 protocols inside the historic stadium over the last two games. About 500 Packers employees and their immediate household members were allowed in the stands for games against the Bears and Eagles.
>>COVID-19 Disrupts College Hockey For Both UW Teams
(Madison, WI) — The COVID-19 pandemic is disrupting college hockey for both teams at the University of Wisconsin. The men’s series at Michigan State tonight (Tuesday) and Wednesday have been called off. That comes in response to a positive test result inside the Badgers program. The games will be rescheduled. The women’s team won’t play either of its two series remaining this month. Injuries and positive test results mean the number-one-ranked Badgers don’t have enough players. It isn’t clear if the series against Minnesota-Duluth and Ohio State will be made up.
>>Teammates Gift Antetokounmpo With A Great Big Ole Hint
(Milwaukee, WI) — It was kind of a joke, but included a message. His teammates all gifted Giannis Antetokounmpo the same way when he turned 26 years old Sunday. Each of them got him a pen. If he uses at least one of them the two-time NBA Most Valuable Player will be paid 227-million dollars over the next five years. Those teammates want him to use their gifts to sign a super-max contract with the Milwaukee Bucks. Antetokounmpo has until December 21st to put his name on the big deal. Khris Middleton and Pat Connaughton were the ring leaders driving the decision to give the superstar a “gag” gift with a strong message Sunday.
>>Badgers Basketball Makes Quick Replacement For Wednesday Game
(Madison, WI) — The Badgers basketball team is going to play a game Wednesday night, but the opponent won’t be Louisville. The game as part of the ACC-Big Ten Challenge was postponed Monday. Both schools are interested in making it up, but there’s no definite date listed yet. Rhode Island will visit the Kohl Center for a 3:30 p-m tip-off to take the place of the Cardinals. The game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network. The Badgers also are confirming the start time for the Big Ten regular-season opener against Nebraska. It will tip off at 6:00 p-m December 21st from the Kohl Center.
>>Marquette Can’t Rest After Badgers Upset – Big Win Over Phoenix Needed Now
(Milwaukee, WI) — The Marquette Golden Eagles are favored to beat U-W-Green Bay tonight (Tuesday) by more than 20 points. If the upset win over the Wisconsin Badgers is going to be the start of an excellent season for coach Steve Wojciechowski’s team, a statement win over the Phoenix would be a good way to maintain the momentum. Green Bay has a chance to be decent this season, but it’s winless so far. Marquette is tasked with proving the two-point win over the Badgers wasn’t a fluke. Even more important – giving a good showing Friday on the West Coast against the UCLA Bruins. That could make the meeting with the Phoenix a “trap game.”
