The Noles will have to worry about one more tight end in the bowl game. And we FSU fans know how the Nole defense has handled opponent tight ends. It was Christmas all year long with opponent tight ends as the Noles allowed the tight ends to be as open as Britney Spears getting out of a car.
Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema said that sophomore tight end Lance Kendricks who had a broken fibula suffered against Michigan State on Nov. 1 is expected to play against the Noles on Saturday. Says Bielema, "A week ago at this time, if you asked me, I wouldn't have guessed it. .... Since we've come down here, he's been lights out, really been practicing well."
Kendricks gives the Badgers another receiving threat. Kendricks has caught six passes for 141 yards, most of it coming in one game. He caught three passes for 94 yards in the second game against Marshall, but has missed five games overall due to injuries.
