It is a good time to be a Wisconsin sports fan.
The Milwaukee Brewers won a divisional title in baseball and made it to the second round of the playoffs. The Green Bay Packers also are headed for a divisional title and have clinched a playoff spot.
And the Wisconsin Badgers football team won its second consecutive Big Ten Conference championship in a thrilling game against Michigan State earlier this month.
The 10th-ranked Badgers will play Oregon in the Rose Bowl Jan. 2. It’s the second straight year, and the fourth time since 1999, that Wisconsin will be playing in the Rose Bowl.
