Count Wisconsin’s contest against Rutgers as one that fans aren’t wanting to be a part of on Saturday afternoon.The Badgers, who started the season as a popular dark horse candidate for the College Football Playoff discussion, have seen that suggestion quickly disappear. With three losses on the season already, Wisconsin is just hoping to keep it together at this point.A battle with the lowly Scarlet Knights might be just what the doctor ordered. Although the game might be what Wisconsin needs, it’s not what the fans want.A few minutes before kickoff, the crowd was…scarce.Didn’t expect a great crowd today but this is pretty rough five minutes before kickoff. pic.twitter.com/daGyaMjfuq— Jason Galloway (@Jason_Galloway) November 3, 2018Wisconsin didn’t wait long to take advantage of the matchup. The Badgers already have a touchdown and the game isn’t even three minutes old yet.Rutgers’ terrible season, which included a loss to Kansas, just keeps getting worse. At least there aren’t many in the stands to witness the game.last_img read more

ATT says new streaming service will cost 35 a month

But it’s comparable to the price of Dish Network’s Sling TV streaming service, which, granted, has fewer channels at that price. It is $20 cheaper than Sony’s PlayStation Vue streaming service tier with a similar number of channels.AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson announced the pricing of the streaming service, called DirecTV Now, at the WSJ.D conference while onstage with Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes.Dallas-based AT&T is buying HBO, CNN and Warner Bros. owner Time Warner for $85.4 billion. The phone company bought satellite TV company DirecTV last year.Stephenson said AT&T would try to keep the streaming service’s price in check through new advertising models. It’s meant to attract the millions of people who have cut cable in recent years or never subscribed to a cable service at all. Many of those are thought to be ages 35 and younger. read more
