 Over 26 seniors – including Chris Borland, James White and Jared Abbrederis – will play their final game at Camp Randall Stadium this afternoon. The Badgers are ranked 15th in the latest BCS rankings, one spot shy of qualifying for a BCS at-large berth. With San Jose State beating Fresno  State yesterday  and some additional shuffling, the Badgers could get there with a simple formula beat Penn State. Badgers and Nittany Lions kickoff at 2:30 adn the game will be televised on ESPN.

 Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy says it’s unknown if quarterback Aaron Rodgers will return next week against the Atlanta Falcons. Rodgers is just the latest in a list of injuries this season. The Packers have some extra days to heal and prepare for next Sunday, after Thursday’s 40-10 loss to Detroit. McCarthy called it one of the toughest losses he’s ever been part of. Despite the injuries and a gloomy season, McCarthy says there’s still a chance of the Packers making the playoffs if they win the final four games of the season. Atlanta, Dallas, Pittsburgh and Chicago remain on the schedule.

The TMZ entertainment Web site says Packers’ quarterback Seneca Wallace will have surgery on a groin tendon he injured November 10th against Philadelphia.  Wallace is quoted as saying he would love to stay in Green Bay next season, but he’ll explore all his options in the spring.  Wallace was put on injured reserve soon after he got hurt.  He was one of four quarterbacks the Packers have used this month along with Aaron Rodgers, Scott Tolzien, and Matt Flynn.

The losing skid continues in Milwaukee. Brandon Knight scored 17 points in the 92-76 loss to Charlotte last night. The Bucks have now lost 11-straight games, seven on the road. The Bucks were without forward Caron Butler, who was a late scratch due to swelling in his knee. Ersan Ilyasova was also limited due to injury, grabbing four rebounds in the loss. Bucks are back in action on Sunday against the defending world champions, the Miami Heat.
