>>4-Star Safety Prospect Braelon Allen Reclassifies To Class Of 2021
(Madison, WI) — Not only is four-star safety prospect Braelon Allen of Fond du Lac committed to playing his football at the University of Wisconsin, but the standout athlete will also be on the Madison campus a year sooner. Allen was the first commit for the 2022 class for the Badgers, but he is reclassifying as a member of the Class of 2021. That means he can join the Badgers next summer while skipping his senior year at Fond du Lac High School. Allen will play football for the Cardinals this spring as Fond du Lac participates in the “alternative” fall season offered by the WIAA. Allen chose the Badgers over programs like Iowa, Michigan State, Michigan, and Notre Dame. Wisconsin’s Class of 2021 is currently ranked number 16, but Allen’s decision will likely move the team up in the rankings.
>>Packers Know How Tough Game Against Detroit Lions Could Be
(Green Bay, WI) — The Green Bay Packers are aware of how difficult Sunday’s home opener against the Lions could be. The Packers beat Detroit twice last season but trailed nearly the entire game both times. Kicker Mason Crosby saved his team with game-winning field goals, twice. Packers coach Matt LaFleur admits it was “pretty much a miracle” that his team swept the season series against the Lions. Detroit is coming off a game against the Chicago Bears where it blew a 17-point, fourth-quarter lead. Before the 2019 season, Detroit had beaten the Pack four straight times over two seasons.
>>Former Badger Taylor To Make 1st NFL Start Sunday
(Indianapolis, IN) — Former Badger running back Jonathan Taylor is set to make his first NFL start Sunday for the Indianapolis Colts. Taylor will be playing in his second professional game against a Minnesota Vikings defense that has historically been one of the league’s best. This time the Vikings will be trying to bounce back from a 43-34 home loss to Green Bay that saw the defense once called the “Purple People Eaters” give up 522 total yards. Both Minnesota and Indianapolis are trying to avoid starting the 2020 season with an oh-and-2 record after losing their openers. Taylor set multiple collegiate records while rushing for six-thousand-174 yards and 55 touchdowns in three seasons with the Badgers.
>>UW Prepares For Football Return With Dozens Of Students Quarantined, Classes Paused
(Madison, WI) — Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez says he and other campus leaders in the Big Ten Conference are concerned about COVID-19, but doctors answered their medical question. That’s why football resumes with practices are starting, with games coming the weekend of October 23rd and 24th. University of Wisconsin officials reported Thursday that testing revealed 127 positive results from campus sites and another 63 students and staff who were tested at off-campus sites. Football is coming back while dozens of students are quarantined in dorms and classes on the Madison campus are on hold. Alvarez says the ability for daily testing suggests the situation can be controlled in a safe environment for the football program.
>>Practice For Badger Men’s/Women’s Basketball Teams Start October 14th
(Madison, WI) — Men’s and women’s basketball teams at the University of Wisconsin can start their preseason practices October 14th. The NCAA is giving teams 42 days to conduct a maximum of 30 practices before the start of the season November 25th. Guidelines say players can work out up to 20 hours-a-week, four hours-a-day and they must be given one day off each week. They will have what is being called a “transition period” to get the players mentally and physically prepared between now and October 13th. That involves strength and conditioning activities, sports-related meetings, and skill instruction.
