Badgers Basketball 2013
The Badgers first televised games of the 2013 basketball season will be aired from Canada next week. Five head-to-head match-ups with the country's best collegiate, national, and pro-am teams will be covered by UWBadgers.com and two Canadian university websites between August 21st and August 26th. The preseason exhibition schedule is Wisconsin's first since a 2006 trip to Italy to play the Italian U-21 National Team.

The Badgers face the Canadian Jr. National Team in the third game of their series. It will mark the first basketball game the team has ever played in Toronto, following just days after Wisconsin's debut performances in Ottawa. Readable updates and stats will be provided by UWBadgers.com.

The Badgers play the first pair of games in their schedule in Ottawa. Carleton welcomes the team to the Kieth Harris Gym on the 21st for the opening game of the series, followed by a game against Ottawa University at Montpetit Hall on the 2.

UWBadgers.com will have real-time coverage of the Carleton contest, while ssncanada.ca will host a live-stream of the Ottawa match-up. Both games start at 6PM central time.

The second game to be streamed will come on August 25. Ryerson University's website will broadcast a contest from Mattamy Athletic Center at 7PM between themselves and the Badgers. It will be Wisconsin's second-of-three games in Toronto, straddled by the team's meeting with the Canadian Jr. National Team on the 24th and a game against pro-am team A Game Hoops at Seneca College on August 26.

Badgers Play At Lambeau Field In 2016 | LSU Tigers Will Come To Green Bay

Badgers play at Lambeau Field
It was recently announced that the Wisconsin Badgers will play their first-ever game at Lambeau Field.  At a press-conference on Thursday, a spokesperson for the school told reporters that the Badgers had finalized plans to meet LSU for the pair’s 2016 season-opener in Green Bay on September 3. The deal is the second part of an agreement made back in May.  The agreement is that the teams will meet twice, in non-conference neutral-field games, before 2020. Wisconsin travels to Houston to face LSU in the 2014 season opener to fulfill their part of the agreement.
The Badgers and the Tigers have meet on gridiron just twice in collegiate history. LSU took the win at the pair’s first meeting in Madison in 1971, though Wisconsin won vengeance the following year in Baton Rouge.
To schedule the date, Wisconsin officials were forced to request a push-back of the Badgers previously planned meeting with Virginia Tech on September 10th. The Hokies agreed to the terms, and the pair will now play a home-home series between 2019 and 2020.
2016 marks the first Big Ten season where all conference teams will begin playing a nine-game league schedule. Wisconsin has made one of the heartiest efforts thus-far to pepper-in substantial non-conference match-ups in light of the change in format, starting with the team’s first game of the 2015 season against Alabama in Arlington.

Washington, South Florida, and Brigham Young University have also agreed to meet the Badgers for non-conference games in the seasons following 2014.

Brewers Ticket Special | Ticket King Wisconsin

Brewers Ticket Special
Our Milwaukee Brewers have taken some knocks this season, but there are still some great games ahead.  The Brew Crew will be wrapping up their West Coast road trip this Sunday at Safeco Field in Seattle.  After that, they come home to Miller Park for eight straight games.

Brewers Versus Reds Tickets

Milwaukee will take on Cincinnati August 15 through August 18. As the Reds try their best to overtake St. Louis and Pittsburgh, it's up to teams like Milwaukee to play the spoiler.  The Brewers may be out of playoff contention, but that doesn't mean they are playing soft baseball. They would love nothing better than to win the series against the Reds. Cincinnati has won just three of their last ten games, and they are "ripe for the picking."

Milwaukee Takes On St. Louis At Miller Park

St. Louis will be in town for a three game series, starting on August 19. St. Louis is also in the hunt for a playoff spot. The Cardinals are just two games behind the Pirates. With just over a month of baseball to be played. It's going to be tough to overtake the Pirates.  They are peaking at just the right time, winning seven of their last ten games.

Brewers Discount For Games At Miller Park

Take advantage of our Brewers ticket discount on any upcoming home game at Miller Park. Use the promo code HOMERUN and save 10% on your next Brewers ticket order. Offer good through August 16. While supplies last. See you at Miller Park!

Packers Family Night August 3 | Ticket King Green Bay

Packers family night
The weather looks great for Packers Family Night. What's it all about? Families enjoying a bit of football action at Lambeau Field. The Packers offense and defense will square off against each other with on field drills this Saturday evening, but there is so much more to see and do. Tickets for the event are available now.

Check out the Packers Experience in the Tundra Tailgate Zone. Opening at 11am, the Tailgate Zone will feature inflatable games, and fun. The little ones might enjoy the Family Night Picnic area, where they can get their fill of chalk drawing and face painting. For the older folks, the Fan Walkway Zone will be set up along Oneida Street.  That's where you will find some of the coolest Packers displays, and live animals from the Wildlife Sanctuary. If that's not enough action for you, be sure to get a load of the Lego Lambeau Field. MSOE students plan to build a giant reproduction of Lambeau, made only of Legos.  I wonder if they have enough dark green Legos to do the job?

At the end of this inter-squad scrimmage, fans will be treated to a fireworks display. Keep in mind that the weather will come in to play, should it be too rainy for those rockets.  The Packers suggest an early arrival, since this event is very popular.  See you in Green Bay!
