Had the Milwaukee Bucks not lost to the Toronto Raptors this past Monday, all Wisconsin sports would have went undefeated.
The Bucks made up for that loss however, as they happily destroyed their biggest rival with back to back routs over the Chicago Bulls Thursday and Friday night.
Badger basketball picked up a win of their own on Wednesday night, taking care of the UW-Green Bay Phoenix 73-59.
The icing on the cake happened Sunday afternoon, as the Green Bay Packers continued the longest rivalry in the NFL by knocking off the Chicago Bears 30-27. Despite squandering a 27-10 lead in the 4th quarter, the Packers were able to drive down the field for a game winning field goal.
The Packers fourth straight win, Bucks back to back wins over the Bulls, and Wisconsin’s win over UW-Green Bay made fans proud to be Wisconsin sports fans.
Packers over the Bears. Two Bucks wins over the Bulls. No tolls.
Wisconsin > Illinois

The Packers and Bucks are coming off big wins, and the Badger have a bowl game coming up; it's a great time to be a fan of Wisconsin sports.

Wisconsin sports completes the Chicago sweep. Bucks beat the Bulls twice and now this. The ultimate teabag to our neighbors.

Can someone put a Crying Jordan face over Illinois after this week of losing to the Bucks twice and the Packers? Please

These fans want the Bucks to play every day.

I came across this chart that plays out all scenarios of the remaining two weeks in the NFL regular season for the NFC North. With two more Packer wins, they would have completed what no one thought was possible a month ago; a division title.
