MADISON, Wis. -

The Badger football team practiced in 90-degree temperatures Tuesday afternoon and it's good they're getting used to it.

Wisconsin plays at Arizona State at 9:30 pm Saturday night. The forecast high temperature in Tempe Saturday is 102.

Wide receiver Jared Abbrederis says, "we've got some nice weather to get ready for Arizona so that's good to have and I'm getting kind of tired, but you've got to push through that and get ready."

Running back Melvin Gordon says hot weather in Wisconsin in late summer isn't anything new. We went through this during camp. I remember it was 100 some degrees out here so it's not like we don't get hot weather out here either, so it's been rough, but we're strong enough, strong minded  enough to push through it."
