In the crowded Badger North, Waunakee and Reedsburg will battle for first place on Thursday night opposite another big conference game, DeForest at Mount Horeb, with a mid-season conference lead on the line in both games.
The DeForest at Mount Horeb game will be broadcast by The Big 1070 as part of The Game of the Week coverage.
Waunakee at Reedsburg, meanwhile, will help not only sort out the top of the standings in the conference, but also help set pairings for the Badger Challenge on January 24 and 25.
Waunakee coach Dana MacKenzie told The Big 1070 that the difficult schedule so far has prepared them for the rigors of the Badger Conference:
Waunakee will face Middleton on Friday and La Follette, #2 in Division 1, on Tuesday, a pair of games against Big 8 competition, before heading over to the Badger Challenge.
Waunakee's rematch with Reedsburg in Waunakee on February 27 will be broadcast by The Big 1070.
