It's here. It's finally here.
Work has been ignored and loved ones neglected all week in anticipation of the opening of the Wisconsin Badger college football season. Slowly Madison's streets begin to fill, as more and more fans swarm the city for that sacred Saturday ritual.
As Bret Bielema and his team prepare for a game against the University of Northern Iowa, a few questions still linger. While the Panthers should put up an admirable fight, they will be outgunned in every phase of the game, which provides the Badgers with a much-needed tune-up game.
While the final score will probably lean more toward blowout than nail-biter, much will be learned in the first game of the season.
