This week on BIG Sports Saturday, we're in full-on hockey mode. Brian Posick, voice of the men's hockey program, details why Wisconsin is in the position it's in now: second in the Big Ten, moving up the ranks in the Pairwise. Reid Magnum, voice of the women's hockey program, says the Badgers play every night with a bullseye on their back, but keep winning anyways. Bob Bradovich, Sports Director for WQOW TV 18 in Eau Claire, is calling the state hockey finals, and previews the championship matches to air statewide, including in Madison on WKOW Channel 27.
