Badgers look for road win against Mavericks

After a rough season-opening series, which saw a highly touted Wisconsin men's hockey team take just one point from Colorado College, the task of starting the 2009-'10 season well will not get any easier. The Badgers must now leave the friendly confines of the Kohl Center and head to the intimidating environment of Minnesota State's Verizon Wireless Center to take on the Mavericks Friday and Saturday.

Boise State not in title contention

What isn't there to like about Boise State? It plays on a blue field, runs loads of trick plays and has the potential to turn the college football world on its head by eventually breaking into the BCS title game usually reserved for teams from the top six conferences and, perhaps, Notre Dame.

For the first four games of the 2009 season, Wisconsin quarterback Scott Tolzien looked like a bona-fide Big Ten star quarterback. For the last three, however, Tolzien has looked the part of a first-year starting quarterback facing elite competition for the first time in his college career.

The Wisconsin men's hockey team took one point out of its opening weekend, losing 3-2 to Colorado College Friday night and working to a 1-1 draw in the series finale Saturday. The Badgers played most of the weekend without their top center, senior Blake Geoffrion, who left Friday's game in the first period with a concussion and did not play Saturday.

In the last two seasons, the Badgers have not been quite able to shake off their first loss. In 2008, the team fell three more times after its first defeat, and in 2007 it followed its first setback with a 31-0 trouncing at the hands of a middling Penn State team.

The Wisconsin men's soccer team needs an offensive boost. During their game Wednesday night against UW-Green Bay, the Badgers had plenty of opportunities but were unable to find the back of the net. They will be looking for more opportunities to arise when they  travel to Evanston, Ill., for a Big Ten matchup against Northwestern at 7 p.m Saturday.
