No. 12 Wisconsin ready to run against UNLV
Question of the Day
“We don’t have to travel,” he quipped.
Still, Wisconsin has a history of tough and strange games in Las Vegas, losing in 1987. The Badgers won a close game in 2007 and had the lights go out at Sam Boyd Stadium in a 27-7 win in 2002 that was called off midway through the fourth quarter.
Daytime temperatures are expected to be around 105 degrees, with the lower 80s expected for the evening kickoff. Wisconsin turned up the thermostat in their indoor practice facility during a practice this week, but it felt more like a steam room at a gym than searing desert heat.
“You can’t prepare for it, we’ve just got to go in and be mentally ready,” Clay said.
While the city is known as a place where your fortunes can change in an instant, Bielema will make sure his Badgers stay focused on the game.
He’s allowing the players a short, guided tour of the Strip _ about 45 minutes _ before heading to the team hotel and staying put. Former coach Barry Alvarez let one of his teams eat at a casino buffet on one of the previous trips there.
“I’m not that bold,” Bielema said.
Moffitt is more interested in relaxing in his room following the long plane flight. He’s going to skip the foray into Las Vegas, where he knows what can happen if one lingers too long.
“It’s a quick tour, then back to reality,” he said. “I definitely want to experience Vegas at some point in my life _ after college. I’ll probably end up broke.”
