|Penn State 14-14 (6-10)||Wisconsin Badgers 24-4 (14-2)|
Call me crazy, but I have a good feeling about tonight. Things are very upbeat in State College. We're on a two game winning streak and I like what I'm hearing from the Penn State players.
"I think we're capable of winning and I think the team believes that we can win."
Meanwhile, Purdue was upset by Ohio State last night effectively laying out the red carpet for Wisconsin to cruise to a number one seed in the Big Ten tournament. This has Badger Nation a bit overconfident.
While the Badgers do have to play forty good minutes tonight, this game should not be a source of major discomfort...Let's call it Wisconsin 70, Penn State 60, and hope that it's not even that close.
Uh, does anyone care to remember Illinois in 2006? Nobody gave Penn State a chance against the Illini who were ranked #6 in the country and riding a bagillion game home winning streak. The Nittany Lions went into Champaign with nothing to lose and came out with a win. Let's hope that can happen again tonight.
The game will be televised at 9 PM on the Big Ten Network. I'm traveling this week so I'm going to try to find a bar to watch the game. Have at it in the open thread.
Go State! Beat Wisconsin!
