Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers joined the party in the Wisconsin Badgers locker room after they had just crushed the Baylor Bears in the Sweet 16. Rodgers was a very pleasant surprise (behold the extremely shocked look on Bo Ryan’s face) as the former NFL and Super Bowl MVP helped Bucky celebrate Ryan’s second Elite Eight appearance.
Here’s picture from the team’s official Twitter account.

The Badgers, who crushed Baylor by 17 in Anaheim California, are allowing just 54.7 points per game in the NCAA Tournament. Baylor’s 52 points tied their season low. On Saturday, Ryan will get the winner of Arizona versus San Diego State.
It was a rather disappointing end for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in the 2014 NFL playoffs; getting ousted by San Francisco in the first round at home. Maybe Bo Ryan can do better. He’s one win away from his first Final Four ever and the first for the program since 2000.
Here’s the video of Aaron Rodgers celebrating with the Badgers.
