Matt Carlino transferred to Marquette University from Brigham Young and immediately became first-year head coach Steve Wojciechowski's "go to" player on offense.

Breaking down the Packers breakdown
The Green Bay Packers had a 12-point lead with four minutes left on Sunday against a Seattle offense that, to that point, had not scored a touchdown and turned the ball over four times.

Nearly 80,000 might be able to squeeze into Lambeau Field, and T-shirts and towels may urge the vocal cords to tear, to "get loud." But Lambeau isn't Century Link Field in Seattle.

Change in attitude has Packers defense rolling
The Green Bay Packers may not have edged the Detroit Lions for the NFC North crown and earned a bye and home game this Sunday against Dallas if not for a change in attitude on defense following the team's bye week back in early November.
