Ex-Packers sons ready to take on Wisconsin

Posted:

 

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- Indiana safety Mark Murphy wears his favorite Packers jersey every Sunday in Bloomington, and Hoosiers quarterback Cameron Coffman still owns a Cheesehead.

   While Badgers fans may not know their names yet, Packers fans almost certainly will remember their fathers.

   Murphy's dad, also Mark, is Green Bay's president and CEO. Coffman's father, Paul, was an All-Pro tight end with Green Bay in the 1980s.

   And now the two guys with the Dairy State ties will be taking on Wisconsin.

   This is not just another game. The Badgers (6-3, 3-2 Big Ten) are hoping to defend their conference title next month in Indianapolis. Meanwhile, the Hoosiers (4-5, 2-3) are probably the only team in the Leaders Division that can derail Wisconsin.
