Wisconsin not quite over flu



AP Sports Writer

Wisconsin's not quite over the flu.

Coach Bret Bielema said Monday at his weekly news conference that after more than 40 guys were sick over the course of last week, two new players showed flulike symptoms on Sunday.

Wisconsin is preparing to play Football Championship Subdivision opponent Wofford this Saturday after hanging on to beat Fresno State 34-31 in double overtime despite the illness that had several players needing IV fluids before the game even started.

Bielema says he hopes the worst is behind them and that they sent the two players who got sick home to get as much rest as they could.

Bielema says the training staff told him that even players who have already had the flu this season could get another strain at some point.
