The Badger State is Brewing!

This could this be the greatest weekend in Badger State sports history. There are two National League playoff games for baseball fans, Packer football in Green Bay, and of course, a historic college football showdown in Madison.
The weekend starts early Saturday when ESPN Gameday is broadcast from Madison. Bascom Hill, an amazing setting on the UW-Madison campus, will host Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit and the rest of the Gameday crew starting at from 8-11 a.m. Saturday. The forecast is for 41 degrees, so to get your blood pumping, I recommend coffee with heavy cream or a spicy bloody mary with a beer chaser or both.
After Gameday, there’s time for lunch and a beer break, and some early college football action. At 1:05 p.m., the National League Playoffs kick-off at Miller Park in Milwaukee. If Brewer fans seem hungry, remember this is only the third playoff game to be held in Milwaukee in the last 30 seasons. A requirement at Miller Park is a cold Miller High Life and either Polish, Italian, Bratwurst or Chorizo.
Following the Brewer game, there’s just enough time to get back to Madison to welcome the Blackshirts to the Big Ten as Nebraska, one of college football’s most storied programs, plays in the Big Ten Conference for the first time. There are reports the 20-30,000 Nebraska fans are descending on Madison just to be part of history. The match-up of top 10 rated teams kicks off at 7 p.m., Jump Around should play a little after 9.
Sunday features another playoff game from Miller Park in Milwaukee, and Packers football in Green Bay.
