>>Brewers Gain Ground In Playoff Chase With Win At Pittsburgh

(Pittsburgh, PA)  —  The Milwaukee Brewers have gained ground in the National League playoff race by blanking the Pirates 3-0 in Pittsburgh. The Crew is now three and a half games behind Central Division leading Chicago with 12 to play — and they’re two in back of Colorado for the final N-L Wild Card as the Cubs and Rockies were both idle Monday. Ryan Braun hit his second homer in three games, and Neil Walker and Travis Shaw both had R-B-I singles as the Brewers won for only the second time in eight games at P-N-C Park this season. Brent Suter gave up five hits in five scoreless innings to improve to 3-2, and Corey Knebel earned his 36th save while Pirates’ starter Jameson Taillon dropped to 7-7 with the loss. Pittsburgh has now lost eleven of its last 12, and the two teams will face each other again tonight (Tuesday).


>>Packers: Injury Situation Won’t Be Clear Until Wednesday

(Green Bay, WI)  —  Coach Mike McCarthy says none of his injured Green Bay Packers appear to be out for the season with the injuries they suffered in Sunday night’s loss at Atlanta. But otherwise, the coach says the total injury picture won’t be clear until at least tomorrow (Wednesday), when the Packers start practicing for their Sunday home contest against Cincinnati. McCarthy might not know until late in the week whether injured receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb can play against the Bengals, and the same goes for defensive lineman Mike Daniels. Nelson hurt a quad muscle, Cobb a shoulder, and Daniels a hamstring — and corner Davon House left with a bad quad as safety Kentrell Brice left with an injured groin. There’s no new word on starting tackles Bryan Bulaga and David Bahktiari, who never played Sunday due to injuries.


>>Packers Tied For Second After Week Two

(Undated)  —  Green Bay is tied for second with Minnesota in the N-F-C North after two weeks of play. The Detroit Lions have become the division’s only unbeaten team at 2-0, after beating the Giants at New York 24-10 on Monday Night. Matthew Stafford threw two touchdown passes, and Lions’ rookie Jamal Agnew sealed Detroit’s victory with an 88 yard punt return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. The Lions’ defense sacked Eli Manning five times as the Giants’ Q-B threw for 239 yards. Detroit is now one game ahead of both Green Bay and Minnesota, both of which are 1-1 after losing Sunday. Chicago is last in the division after dropping its first two.


>>Is Rodgers Sealing Place In History With 300 TD Passes?

(Green Bay, WI)  —  Aaron Rodgers is a hot topic on social media, after the Packers quarterback became the fastest to reach 300 touchdown passes for his career. His one yard shovel pass to Ty Montgomery Sunday night at Atlanta got Rodgers to 300 T-Ds in 144 games and 47-hundred-42 pass attempts. Various tweets disagree on whether Rodgers is starting to become one of the best Q-Bs ever. Critics bring up the numbers of Super Bowl titles, of which Rodgers has just one — but others say championships are team accomplishments. A tweet from the N-F-L notes that Rodgers is the league’s all time leader in career touchdowns per interception at four point oh five — and he has the all time highest passer rating at 103 point eight.


>>Report: NBA Veteran Guard Brandon Rush Signs With Bucks

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Veteran N-B-A guard Brandon Rush could be joining the Milwaukee Bucks. His management firm of Priority Sports tweeted Monday that Rush has signed a contract with Milwaukee. But media outlets say he has not signed anything yet — and E-S-P-N says the 32-year-old Rush will likely sign a non guaranteed one year deal and compete with Jason Terry, James Young, Rashad Vaughn, and Sterling Brown for backup action at shooting guard behind starter Khris Middleton. Rush played last season with Minnesota after spending four of the previous five years with Golden State. In nine N-B-A seasons, Rush has game averages of seven points, three rebounds, and one assist in 481 regular season contests.


>>Five Wheaton Football Players Charged In Felony Hazing

(Wheaton, IL)  —  Five football players at Wheaton College near Chicago are charged in a 2016 hazing incident in which a freshman teammate was beaten, duct taped, and left half naked on a field with two torn shoulders. Noah Spielman, Benjamin Pettway, and All American center Kyler Kregel all played Saturday when Wheaton crushed Carthage of Kenosha 37-14 in a C-C-I-W contest. Samuel TeBos and James Cooksey are also charged, after a judge signed arrest warrants with 50-thousand dollar bonds — and the five are all reportedly expected to turn themselves in this week on counts of aggravated battery, unlawful restraint, and mob action. The Chicago Tribune says the hazing victim left Wheaton soon after the incident, and he now goes to college in Indiana, and defendant Noah Spielman is the son of former N-F-L All Pro linebacker Chris Spielman. The status of the players is not clear, as Wheaton is now 3-0 and ranked fourth in the N-C-A-A’s Division Three.

>>Packers Hobble Out Of Atlanta With Loss

(Atlanta, GA)  —  The Green Bay Packers hobble out of Atlanta after a 34-23 loss Sunday night in the first game in the Falcons’ new Mercedes Benz Stadium. The Pack started without injured tackles David Bahktiari and Bryan Bulaga plus top backup Jason Spriggs — and the Falcons took advantage by making constant defensive front changes while building up a 31-7 lead early in the third quarter, when Aaron Rodgers was hit uncontested by Atlanta’s Vic Beasley and a resulting fumble was returned by Desmond Trufant for the Falcons’ final touchdown. Both teams had key injuries along the way as Rodgers completed 33 of 50 passes for 343 yards, two touchdowns, and a late first half interception — and he threw his 300th career T-D pass on a shovel to Ty Montgomery in the fourth quarter. Montgomery ran for 35 yards and had six catches for 75 more, as the Packers ended with a slight edge in total yards, 367-364. Green Bay is now 1-1 and will host Cincinnati next Sunday.


>>Packers, Falcons Lose Stars To Injuries

(Atlanta, GA)  —  Packers’ coach Mike McCarthy will have a full injury report to deal with this week, after losing both his starting receivers to injuries in Sunday night’s loss at Atlanta. Jordy Nelson went out early with a sore quad and Randall Cobb left in the fourth quarter with an injured shoulder. The Packers also lost defensive line starter Mike Daniels early to a pulled hamstring, and safety Kentrell Brice left in the second quarter with a groin injury. Atlanta was also hit hard, too, as last year’s N-F-L sack leader Vic Beasley hurt a hamstring — defensive end Courtney Upshaw went out with a bad ankle — and right tackle Ryan Schrader went out with a concussion on the Falcons’ first scoring drive.


>>Badgers Rise In Polls After Big Win At BYU

(Madison, WI)  —  The Wisconsin football team rises in both major polls Sunday, after the Badgers’ 40-6 romp at B-Y-U the previous day. The 3-0 Badgers went up one place to ninth in the national media survey, while jumping two spots to tenth in the coaches’ poll. Coach Paul Chryst called the B-Y-U game an opportunity for both players and coaches to grow — and he said quarterback Alex Hornibrook and rusher Jonathan Taylor were among them, along with receiver Quintez Cephus, A-J Taylor, and Danny Davis. Wisconsin has had at least 200 passing yards and 200 rushing yards in all three of their games this season after accomplishing the feat just twice last year. The Badgers have a bye next weekend and will open their Big Ten schedule September 30th at home against Northwestern.


>>Brewers Score Eight In Fourth Inning To Beat Miami

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Brewers close out their big “road series at home” with a 10-3 victory against the Miami Marlins On Sunday at Miller Park. The Crew scored eight runs in the fourth inning without the benefit of a homer, as Milwaukee took two of three in a series that was supposed to be played in South Florida but wasn’t because of Hurricane Irma. Travis Shaw and Jesus Aguilar both went three for five as the Brewers outhit Miami 16-8. Brandon Woodruff gave up three runs in seven innings for the win, improving to 2-2 while Marlins’ starter Dillon Peters took the loss. The Brewers still lost ground in the National League Central race as the first place Chicago Cubs swept a three game home set against Saint Louis — and Milwaukee remains four games behind Chicago, and two and a half behind Colorado for the final N-L Wild Card as the Crew opens a series at Pittsburgh tonight (Monday).


>>PGA Senior: Kelly Wins Second Tourney In Four Weeks

(Victoria, BC)  —  Madison golfer Jerry Kelly wins his second tournament in four weeks on the senior P-G-A Champions Tour. Kelly shot a minus three 68 on a cool and rainy Sunday to win the Pacific Links Bear Mountain Championship in Victoria, British Columbia. He held off Lee Janzen, who finished one stroke back to the 50-year-old Kelly who finished his three rounds at minus 14 199. Fox Point native Skip Kendall tied for 39th at minus one 212. Rhinelander native Dan Forsman tied for 67th at plus nine.


>>NASCAR: Kenseth 9th In Playoff Opener, Rises To 9th In Standings

(Joliet, IL)  —  Matt Kenseth of Cambridge rises to ninth in the playoff standings of NASCAR’s top series. He started the Monster Energy playoffs in 15th place — but Kenseth jumped six spots after taking ninth in Sunday’s ten race playoff opener, the Tale of the Turtles 400 at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois. Kenseth, who still hasn’t won a race this year, says he was disappointed that he didn’t “pass a soul all day” but as he put it — “If you’re just worried about getting to the next round, it was a decent day.” Non playoff drivers Paul Menard of Eau Claire took 14th and Beloit born Danica Patrick finished 18th. Martin Truex, Junior won the race and he leads the playoff standings with Kenseth 63 points back.

>>Idle Brewers Slip In Division, Improve Wild Card Chances

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Brewers have dropped to a second place tie with Saint Louis in the National League Central, after the Cardinals and Cubs both won Thursday while the Crew was idle. Both Milwaukee and Saint Louis are three games behind Chicago for the division crown as the Cubs reduced their magic number to 14 to clinch. Colorado lost Thursday night, so the Brewers and Redbirds both improved to two and a half games behind the Rockies for the final N-L Wild Card. The Cubs and Cards play each other in a weekend series that starts this (Friday) afternoon at Wrigley Field. Milwaukee hosts Miami tonight (Friday) in a series moved to Miller Park due to the fallout from Hurricane Irma.


>>Brewers Expect Around 20,000 At Each Game Moved From Miami

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Brewers say they expect around 20-thousand fans at Miller Park for each of the three weekend games moved from Miami. Major League Baseball moved the contests on Wednesday, and the Brewers’ concession operator scrambled to get enough workers available to open two of the four seating decks. Almost half of the nearly 70-thousand extra seats were sold in the first 45 minutes they were put on sale Thursday — and the Brewers say there are still discounted ten-dollar seats available in the second deck for each game. Manager Craig Counsell has still not announced a starter for tonight (Friday), while the Marlins will put up right hander Jose Urena (oo ray’nuh) who’s 13-6.


>>Former Brewer Fiers Gets Suspended For Retaliation

(Anaheim, CA)  —  Former Brewers’ starter Mike Fiers of Houston has started a five game suspension for throwing a fastball above the head of Angels’ slugger Luis Valbuena. Fiers said he took it as a sign of “disrespect” when Valbuena made a big flip of his bat after hitting his 20th homer of the season off Fiers Wednesday night. So the next time he came up, Fiers greeted him with a pitch at least two feet above his head. Plate umpire Cory Blaser immediately warned both benches to stop that. Fiers chose not to appeal, so he started his suspension Thursday night, and Major League Baseball fined him an undisclosed amount. The 32-year-old Fiers was traded two years ago at the start of Milwaukee’s rebuilding process — and he’s 8-10 is this year for a Houston team that has a magic number of three to clinch the American League West Division title.


>>Offensive Line Is Biggest Question Mark For Pack

(Green Bay, WI)  —  The offensive line is the biggest question mark for the Green Bay Packers as they get ready for their Sunday night game at Atlanta. Starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga has missed two days of practices with flu like symptoms, and he has not tested the injured right ankle that kept him out of last week’s season opening win against Seattle. Meanwhile, backup tackle Jason Spriggs did not practice Thursday with a bad hamstring — and starting left tackle David Bahktiari was limited for a second straight day with a hamstring issue. Kyle Murphy would start at right tackle if Bulaga doesn’t. Also, linebacker Ahmad Brooks missed his second straight practice with a concussion suffered against the Seahawks.


>>Taylor, Badgers Seek To Go 3-0 At BYU

(Madison, WI) — Freshman running back Jonathan Taylor leads Wisconsin into tomorrow’s contest at Brigham Young in Provo, Utah. Sophomore Bradrick Shaw has been out with a leg injury while Taylor led the U-W with 223 rushing yards and three touchdowns in a home win against Florida Atlantic last Saturday. Shaw is listed as questionable for tomorrow (Saturday), along with right guard Beau Benzschawel and kickoff specialist P-J Rosowski — and left guard Jon Dietzen has been ruled out with a right ankle injury. Wisconsin is 2-0, leading the Big Ten in total offense with 521 yards a game while B-Y-U averages 232 yards of offense. The Cougars are 1-2 with losses to Utah and L-S-U.


>>Undefeated Wisconsin Volleyball Team Tops Marquette

(Madison, WI)  —  The Wisconsin volleyball team improves to 8-0 after beating Marquette in four sets on Thursday night in Madison. Kelli Bates had 17 kills and ten digs to lead the Badgers, who outhit the Golden Eagles .254 to .159. Marquette became the first team to win a set against the fifth ranked Badgers by taking Thursday’s opening game 25-19. Allie Barber had 21 kills for Marquette, which is now 5-5.

>Brewers Beat Pirates, Gain Ground In Wild Card Race

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Brewers gain ground in the Wild Card race after pounding Pittsburgh 8-2 Wednesday night at Miller Park. Eric Thames’ 30th home run highlighted a decisive four run third inning for the Crew, as it moved to within three games of Colorado for the final N-L Wild Card while staying two and a half back for the Central Division lead. Chase Anderson won his tenth game against three losses, giving up two runs in five and one third innings while going on three days rest. Andrew McCutcheon hit his 200th career homer for the Pirates, who lost manager Clint Hurdle after he was ejected for arguing a called walk in the first frame. Tyler Glasnow took the loss as the Brewers’ fourth win in five games moved them into sole possession of second in the division, a half game ahead of Saint Louis with Milwaukee idle today (Thursday).


>>Hurricane Cleanup Forces Marlins To Move Series To Milwaukee

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Miami Marlins will move their three game weekend home series with the Brewers to Milwaukee. The Marlins told Major League Baseball they could not get their home park ready after Hurricane Irma. M-L-B normally likes neutral sites in this case, but the request was made to move it to Miller Park because its retractable roof guarantees that the games will be played. The Brewers will be the “visiting team” and will bat first for three games which start at 7:10 Friday night, 6:10 Saturday, and 1:10 Sunday. Because of a lack of time to get a whole work crew, only the field level deck will be open Friday and the lower two decks the rest of the weekend — and discounted tickets go on sale at ten this (Thursday) morning at Brewers Dot Com.


>>Brewers Promote Wilkerson For Possible Start

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Minor league starter Aaron Wilkerson is being called up to the Brewers, and he could start tomorrow (Friday) night against Miami. His agent confirmed the move, and manager Craig Counsell says he’s still looking at options so the team has not announced it yet. The 28-year-old Wilkerson ran a grocery store’s frozen food section five years ago after getting Tommy John elbow surgery out of college and assuming his baseball career wouldn’t go anyplace. He started playing independent ball in 2013, which led to minor league experience and a trade from the Boston organization to Milwaukee in 2016. Wilkerson went 11-4 this season at Double “A” Biloxi and threw seven hitless innings for Triple “A” Colorado Springs in a recent playoff game.


>>Packers Replace Jean Francois With Backup “O” Line Help

(Green Bay, WI)  —  The Green Bay Packers are getting some backup help for their offensive line after cutting veteran defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois. The Packers promoted guard and tackle Adam Pankey from their practice squad Wednesday, amid injuries to tackles Bryan Bulaga and backup Jason Spriggs. Green Bay added rookie guard Darrell Greene for the practice squad opening. The Packers will practice again today (Thursday) for Sunday night’s contest at Atlanta.


>>Packer Greats Nominated For Pro Football Hall Of Fame

(Green Bay, WI)  —  Four Packer stars from the past 25 years are among the 108 modern era nominees to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Receivers Donald Driver and Sterling Sharpe, safety Leroy Butler, and coach Mike Holmgren are among the early candidates. Semifinalists and finalists will be determined before the inductees are announced the day before the Super Bowl. Linebacker Clay Matthews’ father Clay Junior is also a nominee along with ex Packers Sean Landeta, Seth Joyner, Jeff Saturday, and Keith Millard. Glory Years’ guard Jerry Kramer is a finalist nominated by the Hall’s senior committee.  Meanwhile, former 1960s linebacker and three time All Pro Dan Currie has died in Las Vegas at age 82.


>>Badger Defense Faces Fallout From Turnovers

(Madison, WI)  —  The Wisconsin defense has faced some real problems after the Badgers’ offense committed four turnovers in its first two games. Three of those miscues happened inside the Wisconsin 40 yard line, giving Utah State and Florida Atlantic short fields to try and score. Two of those scores went for touchdowns, and Badgers’ defensive coordinator Jim Leonhard says his unit has a lot to fix because it has not handled those situations very well. In the opener against Utah State, the Badgers gave the ball away on a botched snap as the Aggies only needed two plays and 16 yards to get a T-D — and the next week, an interception from quarterback Alex Hornibrook gave Florida Atlantic a short five play drive to score its second and final touchdown. Tenth ranked Wisconsin plays at B-Y-U Saturday in Utah.

>>Brewers Beat Pirates, Keep Pace In NL Central

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Brewers keep pace in the division and Wild Card races with a 5-2 home victory against Pittsburgh Tuesday night. The Crew scored four runs in the third inning, highlighted by a two run double from Domingo Santana — and Eric Thames belted his 29th homer to keep Milwaukee two and a half games out of first in the N-L Central and four games back for the league’s final Wild Card. Starter Brent Suter, still not fully back from a bad rotator cuff, went three innings and six relievers followed as Jeremy Jeffress got the win and Corey Knebel earned his 35th save. Gerrit Cole took his first road loss since May 22nd for Pittsburgh.  The Brewers and Pirates will play the rubber contest of their three game set tonight (Wednesday) at Miller Park, and Chase Anderson will start on three days rest for the Crew in place of the injured Jimmy Nelson.


>>Packers Reactivate Allison; Cut Gunter, Jean Francois

(Green Bay, WI)  —  The Green Bay Packers have activated receiver Geronimo Allison after his one game marijuana suspension. To make room on the roster, the Pack cut third year corner LaDarius Gunter — and E-S-P-N says Green Bay was about to cut veteran defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois. Gunter got a lot of playing time last season to replace an injury depleted secondary — but with corners Damarious Randall and Quintin Rollins now healthy, Gunter only had two plays in Sunday’s home win against Seattle. Jean Francois was expected to be a key backup but he only played six snaps against the Seahawks — and the Packers later brought in Quintin Dial as a defensive line reinforcement. The 1-0 Packers start practicing today (Wednesday) for their Sunday home contest at Atlanta’s new stadium.


>>Badgers: Benzschwael Practices, Dixon Wins Appeal

(Madison, WI)  —  Wisconsin right guard Beau Benzschawel returned to practice Tuesday after he hurt his right leg last Saturday against Florida Atlantic. Offensive coordinator Joe Rudolph says Benzschawel took part in a good number of plays at practice, and he appears on track to play Saturday at B-Y-U. Left guard Jon Dietzen did not practice Tuesday with a lingering right ankle injury. Meanwhile, Badgers’ safety D’Cota Dixon has won an appeal with the Big Ten and regained one full year of eligibility. Dixon sought the additional year after playing just three games in his freshman year of 2014 before going out with a season ending shoulder injury — and he’s now listed as a redshirt junior.


>>Men’s College Soccer: Marquette Falls To No. 12 Virginia

(Undated)  —  The Marquette men’s soccer team is still winless in five matches after losing at 12th ranked Virginia 2-0. Raheem Taylor Parkes broke a scoreless tie in the 48th minute and Sergi Nus scored on a penalty kick as Virginia improved to 4-0-and-1 while Marquette dropped to 0-4-and-1. Also, U-W Milwaukee played to a 2-2 tie at home against Missouri/Kansas City. Jason Palitang Svensson scored on a header in the 79th minute to prevent a loss for U-W-M, which is now 2-2-and-2.


>>College Volleyball: Marquette Blanks UWM

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Marquette volleyball team wins its eleventh straight match against U-W Milwaukee with a shutout in three sets on U-W-M’s home court. Allie Barber had 13 kills and a .458 hitting percentage for the Golden Eagles, who improved to 5-4 on the season. Caitlin Schultz had 13 kills and Mykie Olsen added ten digs for Milwaukee which fell to 7-4.


>>College Golf: Marquette 3rd, UW 7th At Badger Men’s Tourney

(Madison, WI)  —  The Marquette men’s golf team finishes third at the Badger Invitational in Madison while the host U-W places fifth. Texas “A” and “M” was the winner at 25 below par with the Golden Eagles eight strokes back and the Badgers 21 off the pace. Matt Murlick was Marquette’s top individual, tying for fourth at minus eight as the Eagles had their lowest 54 hole score since October of 2015. Griffin Barela led Wisconsin at minus five in a tie for eighth. In women’s college golf, the Badgers tied for fifth at the Minnesota Invitational near Saint Paul as U-S-C won the team title and the U-W’s Gabby Curtis tied for tenth.

>>Brewers Crushed By Pirates, Fall To 3rd

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Milwaukee Brewers fall to third place in both the National League Central Division and the Wild Card race, after being crushed at home by Pittsburgh 7-0. Steven Brault earned his first Major League win, striking out six in six innings and giving up one hit as the Brewers only got three singles on the night.  Brandon Woodruff took the loss, surrendering six runs in five frames as he dropped to 1-2. Starling Marte, Andrew McCutcheon, and Jordy Mercer homered for the Pirates, who snapped Milwaukee’s three game winning streak. Saint Louis is now the nearest contender to the Chicago Cubs for the division crown, and to Colorado for the final N-L Wild Card as Milwaukee dropped to two and a half games behind the Cubs and four in back of the Rockies.


>>Brewers Still Expect To Play In Miami This Weekend

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  It appears that the Brewers will play their scheduled three game series in Miami this weekend in the wake of Hurricane Irma. Marlins Park had its roof partially damaged, but the stadium escaped flooding and it’s been found to be safe. Manager Craig Counsell says his players and coaches that have families in Florida survived the storm without “serious harm.” Counsell has said he hopes his team can play its three scheduled contests in Miami — and so far, he says “every piece of news has been positive.” Reports say Major League Baseball will do all it can to keep the Brewers/Marlins games in South Florida — but it’s possible the games could still be moved to a neutral site.


>>Packers: Rodgers Cashing In On More Free Plays

(Green Bay, WI)  —  Aaron Rodgers keeps fine tuning his field awareness to cash in on more free plays for the Green Bay Packers. Rodgers says he knows opponents plan for it — but they cannot stop it, as shown in Sunday’s home win against Seattle. Rodgers coaxed the Seahawks’ defense off sides three times with his cadence and speed in getting plays started. He also caught the Seahawks napping while making a substitution, and Seattle got penalized for having 12 men on the field while Rodgers used the free play for a 32 yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson. The 1-0 Packer players are off today (Tuesday), and they’ll start practicing tomorrow (Wednesday) for their Sunday night contest at 1-0 Atlanta.


>>Badgers: Two Offensive Linemen Questionable For BYU

(Madison, WI)  —  Two starting offensive linemen are questionable for Wisconsin its next game at B-Y-U on Saturday in Utah. Right guard Beau Benzschawel and left guard Jon Dietzen both have right leg injuries. Benzschawel left Saturday’s home win against Florida Atlantic in the second quarter, and Dietzen has had occasional ankle injuries during his more than two years at the U-W. Also, running back Bradrick Shaw, backup safety Patrick Johnson, and kickoff specialist P-J Rosowski are listed as questionable for the B-Y-U game and four other Badgers are still out — running back Taiwan Deal, fullback Jake Whalen, receiver George Rushing, and defensive end Chikwe Obasih. Redshirt freshman receiver Kendric Pryor has been cleared for full contact after getting facial injuries in a moped accident.


>>Whitewater Drops Out Of D3 Top 25

(Undated)  —  U-W Whitewater has fallen out of the “D” Three Football Dot Com Top 25 after going 0-2 for the first time in 18 years. The Warhawks are coming off two straight road losses, including a 25-17 defeat at Concordia/Moorhead in northwest Minnesota. U-W Oshkosh remains at Number three in this week’s poll at 2-0, in the wake of a 74-7 rout of Virginia/Lynchberg. U-W Platteville remains at Number 13 after being off last Saturday, and U-W Stout makes its first Top 25 appearance of the year with victories against Simpson and Saint Thomas as the Tommies dropped from fourth to tenth. Carthage and La Crosse joined Whitewater in receiving votes, and Mary Hardin Baylor of Texas remains at Number One.


>>Men’s Golf: Marquette Second, UW 7th At Badger Invitational

(Madison, WI)  —  Marquette is in second place and Wisconsin is Number seven among 16 schools at the Badger Invitational golf tournament in Madison. Texas “A” and “M” is the leader going into today’s (Tuesday’s) third and final round at University Ridge. The Aggies are at minus 16 with Marquette six strokes back and Wisconsin 18 strokes off the pace at plus two. Jordan Hahn of the Badgers is third among the individuals at six below par, and Matt Murlick of Marquette is tied for fourth after shooting a minus three 69 on Monday.
