Wisconsin football is coming home to Madison for the first time this season this weekend.
The 17th ranked Badgers will welcome Central Michigan to Camp Randall Stadium at 2:30 Saturday afternoon. The Badgers will have to play without starting nose tackle Bryson Williams who injured his leg during practice earlier this week.
This is the final tune-up before Big Ten conference play starts next weekend with a home game against seventh ranked Michigan.
Also from the sidelines, a pair of women who are accusing University of Wisconsin wide receiver Quintez Cephus of sexual assault hire a high profile lawyer to investigate why he was reinstated by the university. Cephus was expelled last year when a university investigation found he likely violated the code of conduct. He was allowed back on campus last month after the Dane County court acquitted him of the sexual assault charges.
Attorney John Clune tells the State Journal the accusers weren’t involved in the decision to readmit Cephus, which is a violation of their rights under Title-Nine.
FROM THE FIELD TO THE WATER…AND BIKE…AND ROAD….
Some of the best athletes in the world will be running, biking and swimming in and around Madison this weekend.
The Ironman Wisconsin triathlon is taking place in the city on Sunday, starting at 6:40 a.m. Anyone traveling around Madison may experience some delays as there will be several roads closed for the race.
BEST OF LUCK TO ALL ATHLETES!
