Penn State-Wisconsin pregame

MADISON, Wis. -- A few pregame notes from soggy Camp Randall Stadium, where it's still raining.

  • As expected, Travis Fredrick worked as Wisconsin's top center in warmups with quarterback Russell Wilson. Fredrick will get the start in place of the injured Peter Konz (ankle).

  • Silas Redd (collarbone) worked as Penn State's first-team running back, while Stephfon Green worked as the primary backup. It will be interesting to see how Redd looks after another week to rest.

  • Penn State's quarterbacks took the field very early for their warmups. Matthew McGloin, Rob Bolden and several others looked to be testing out the less-than favorable conditions.

  • As usual, a late-arriving crowd here at Camp Randall. The student section doesn't even look one-fourth full. It will be interesting to see if this is a normal home atmosphere for the Badgers.
