Monday Wisconsin Sports UPDATE

Here is the latest Wisconsin sports from The AP

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers didn't have to choose yesterday between playing it safe and playing to win. The Packers finished their turnaround regular season with a 34-13 victory over the Detroit Lions while resting several key players for the playoffs. Brett Favre led the Packers to touchdowns on their first three possessions before handing the ball to backup Craig Nall in the second quarter.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Who do you think scored more points this season -- Randy Moss or Mason Crosby? The Patriots receiver set a record with 23 touchdown catches, good for 138 points. But with ten points yesterday, the Packers kicker finishes the season with 141 points. An unofficial count by AP shows Crosby's total led the NFL this season. Moss was second, and Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski was third with 137.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Packers coach Mike McCarthy hasn't said much about injuries from yesterday's game. Running back Ryan Grant left the game with a stinger in the first quarter but McCarthy says he still could have played if needed. Cornerback Will Blackmon later aggravated an old foot injury. McCarthy didn't say much yesterday about injuries to guards Jason Spitz (quadriceps) and Junius Coston (calf).

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- In college football, underclassmen usually don't make an immediate impact. But the Wisconsin Badgers know they wouldn't be in the 2008 Outback Bowl without the strong contributions of a number of younger players. When the Badgers face Tennessee tomorrow, six players from the Wisconsin's last two recruiting classes are expected to see significant playing time.
