Flu-like symptoms hit UW Badger football team


MADISON (WKOW) -- Flu-like symptoms have hit the UW-Football team.

Head coach Bret Bielema is keeping the team away from as many people as possible, including the media.

The Channel 27 sports department was scheduled to talk with offensive players Tuesday night, when Bielema told team officials that at least ten players have come down with flu-like symptoms.

This situation has been gradually getting worse since two players were showing signs last Saturday night.

The Badgers' team doctor tells 27 Sports there have been no cases of the H1N1 virus on the football team yet, but this is a developing situation.  Coach Bielema will address the media tonight.
