Monday Wisconsin Sports UPDATE

Here is the latest Wisconsin sports from The AP

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Brett Favre broke Dan Marino's record for career touchdown passes yesterday, zipping Number 421 to Greg Jennings in the first quarter against Minnesota. He threw another TD in the fourth quarter. He finished 32-of-45 for 344 yards, the 50th time he's topped 300 yards in his career. He helped the team stay undefeated and win 23-16.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Almost lost in the glory of Brett Favre's touchdown record is another amazing statistic -- the Packers are 4-0. Few people expected that level of success when the season began. Favre also went interception-free to avoid becoming an all-time leader another category. Favre is three picked-off passes away from overtaking George Blanda on the career list.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Some Vikings were upset yesterday over what they thought were poor calls, including a no-call on their last possession of the game. Down by seven with about a minute to play, Vikings quarterback Kelly Holcomb threw a pass that was deflected and picked off by Atari Bigby. Minnesota complained about illegal contact but says the official claimed he missed the call because he was looking the other way.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers ended their season on a high note. They may be out of the running for the division title, but they won yesterday over the San Diego Padres, 11-6. Prince Fielder sat out because of a high right-ankle sprain he sustained Saturday.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin's 37-34 victory over Michigan State this weekend did more than extend the nation's longest winning streak. With the win, the Badgers jumped from ninth to fifth in The Associated Press poll. Wisconsin is now 5-0 and has won 14 straight games.
