Badgers fans head to Big Ten Fan Fest

Posted: Updated:

INDIANAPOLIS (WKOW) -- The Badgers football team arrived in Indianapolis on Friday and so did Badgers fans.

Part of the festivities include the Big Ten Championship Fan Fest. Fans blew through their allotment of 10,000 tickets early in the week. There should be more Badgers red than in some previous conference championship appearances due to the historic nature of Wisconsin's first 12-0 season.

"Half way through the season we booked rooms here because we thought Wisconsin would go undefeated. We love Indianapolis. It's a great place to come for the game," said fan Mike Spoehr

"Tomorrow it's going to be crazy down here. It will be a fantastic environment. Indy is a fantastic city for events like this. Everything is so close. Restaurants, hotels. Why people don't come down to root on the Badgers is beyond me," said fan Mark Wicklein.

    Cousins, Davis lead Pelicans past Bucks, 115-108

    DeMarcus Cousins had 26 points and 13 rebounds and the New Orleans Pelicans beat the Milwaukee Bucks 115-108 on Wednesday night.    The Pelicans turned the ball over 21 times, with nine committed by Cousins, but the mercurial All-Star center came through in the clutch with a couple of soaring dunks -- one on a putback and another on a cut down the lane -- and added a 3-pointer with 22 seconds left that put it virtually out of reach.    Anthony Davis returned from a...More >>
