>>3rd Straight Packers Loss Costs McCarthy His Job

(Green Bay, WI)  —  When kicker Mason Crosby’s 49-yard field goal went wide ride into a strong wind it cost the Green Bay Packers a 20-17 upset loss to Arizona.  It also cost veteran head coach Mike McCarthy the job he has held for the last 13 seasons.  The Packers have lost three in a row and five out of their last six games.  Joe Philbin will be the interim head coach for the final four games of the season.  Quarterback Aaron Rodgers set a team record in the second quarter when he hit Davante Adams with a 16-yard completion.  It was his 295th straight pass without an interception.  The Packers host the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday.

>>Wisconsin Men’s Hockey Scores 5 Straight Games To Come From Behind

(Madison, WI)  —  The Wisconsin men’s hockey team wiped out a two-goal deficit by scoring five straight times in an 8-5 win over Penn State Saturday.  The Badgers had taken a 3-1 lead early in the second period when the Nittany Lions scored four goals in-a-row.  Senior forward Will Johnson had a pair of goals in the high-scoring game.  The eight goals are the most put on the board by a Badger team in five years.  Wisconsin hosts Michigan State next weekend.
