4 Wins, 3 Teams, 1 State: On, Wisconsin!

This past weekend had to have been one of the most exciting weekends for the world of sports in a long time for the state of Wisconsin.  To kick off the weekend, we had the Brewers against the Diamondbacks in Game 1 of the NLDS.  Yovani Gallardo faced off with Ian Kennedy and in the end Yovani and the Brewers prevailed winning game one by a score of 4-1.  On to game two, Zack Greinke squared off with Arizona’s Daniel Hudson.  While not one of Greinke’s best performances, the offense was able to bail out the ace with a five run inning and hold that lead for the rest of the game winning 9-4.  Brewers lead the series 2-0.

The Wisconsin Badgers welcomed Nebraska to the Big Ten Saturday night at Camp Randell Stadium.  Quite possibly one the top match-ups of the season, the badgers proved once again to be the real deal.  They got off to a slow start offensively, but that changed quickly as the Badgers were ahead 27-14 at half.  The Badgers scoring surge continued into the second half and outscored the Cornhuskers 21-3.  Wisconsin went on to win by a score of 48-17.  The team was led by Heisman hopeful Russell Wilson, who threw for two touchdowns; and also a huge effort from Montee Ball who rushed for 151 yards and scoring 4 times.  The Badgers remain undefeated with a record of 5-0.

To finish off the weekend of sports, the Packers played the Denver Broncos at Lambeau Field on Sunday.  The Broncos scored first but Green Bay scored and could not stop.  They scored 14 points every quarter except in the fourth.  Aaron Rodgers had a field day passing for 401 yards and he threw 4 touchdown passes.  He also ran the ball nine times and rushed for two touchdowns as well.  The pass defense looked a little better this week, keeping Broncos QB Kyle Orton to under 300 yards passing and also intercepting him three times.  Packers remain unbeaten with a record of 4-0.

Until next time, Beer, Brats, and Championships.
