Badgers-Wildcats: Big Ten Championship Official for Wisconsin

Badger TrackerAnalyst IMarch 8, 2008

The Badgers had no problems whatsoever with the Wildcats as they secured a double-digit victory in front of what essentially amounted to a home crowd in Evanston. Matt LePay said that 80 percent of the crowd was wearing red, and emphasized that this was a pretty conservative estimate.

Bring on the Big Ten Tournament! The Badgers will be the No. 1 seed and will face the winner of the 8/9 game at 11 am on Friday in Indianapolis. The participants in that game will be determined tomorrow—but as of right now, could include Penn State, Iowa, Michigan, or Illinois.

All we need now is a North Dakota hockey victory, and this weekend will be good.
