Former Badger Russell Wilson Attending Tonight's Wisconsin vs. North Carolina Game

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson may have played the majority of his collegiate career at NC State, but he did utilize the graduate transfer rule in 2011 to play his final season at Wisconsin before getting drafted into the NFL. As such, understandably, Wilson roots for both schools. Thursday, he'll be in attendance to root for his Badgers against North Carolina in the Sweet 16. He announced the news via his Twitter account.

The Badgers and Tar Heels are set to tip off at 7:47 PM EST. Wilson will be in Los Angeles to take it in.

Perhaps a pre-game locker room speech is in order?
