Badger fans in Milwaukee are buzzing with excitement as bars and restaurants are expecting lots of fans cheering on Wisconsin on in the Sweet 16.

With a win the Badgers will advance to the Elite 8, and be one step closer to a National Championship.

"They're going to go all the way," said Chris Wemmert.

Friday night they're taking on the Florida Gators. Edd Konopka is originally from New York and would've loved to go see the team at Madison Square Garden. Even though he couldn't make the trip he's just proud of the direction the team is going.

"I've very excited, I'd like to see them make it to the final four and then take it all. They definitely win in March," he said.

And fans are expecting another upset

"They're a streaky team. When they're shooting and making shots, they're as good as anyone or better," Wemmert said.

This is the fourth straight year the Badgers have played in the Sweet 16, so fans hope that experience will give them an edge.
