Madison -- I just touched down here in Mad-town, and I couldn't help but notice the dismal weather.

This should affect both teams in the 3 p.m. showdown between Big Foot and Brodhead in a WIAA Division 4 state football semifinal in Middleton.

Here's some food for thought, passing teams usually struggle in rainy, wet conditions. And while there is no wind and no rain currently, morning rain surely caused the playing surface to moisten.

The field is turf, which will help eliminate mud patches and other hazards for runners. But the possibility of a slick football should benefit the Chiefs.

Brodhead's quarterback, David Earleywine, has thrown for 1,230 yards and 19 touchdowns this season. While the Cardinals do have two potent running backs, it seems like they rely on their passing a lot.

Big Foot is a run-first squad, and its huge offensive line should wear down the Cardinals. So keep an eye on if Brodhead cuts back on passing plays to minimize mistakes.

It's time to head over to Middleton, which is about 10 minutes from the Madison Starbucks I'm currently filing from.

Check back in a couple of hours for a score and highlights from the tilt. The Chiefs are looking to advance to their third straight state title game.
