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

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.

Meanwhile, the Hoosiers (4-5, 2-3) are probably the only team in the Leaders Division that can derail Wisconsin.
