Fans get ready for the game

Ahead of the game, fans in Milwaukee and across the country have been gearing up for what will likely be a stressful few hours.

In Milwaukee, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum released two new Marquette bobbleheads. Both bobbleheads are of the Marquette University mascot, a golden eagle name Iggy. One of them is of Iggy in Marquette's navy uniform, and the other is Iggy in Marquette's blue uniform.

The bobbleheads are in addition to two Marquette bobbleheads which were released earlier this year. Those are of Iggy in the gold and white jerseys.

All of the Marquette bobbleheads are available online here.The bobbleheads are $35 each plus an $8 flat-rate shipping charge per order.

It's not just fans in Milwaukee who are excited for the game, but fans in Columbus as well. A lot of Marquette alumni traveled to Ohio for the game and spoke to TMJ4's James Groh. He joined us live on air Friday morning during TMJ4 News Today to talk about what he's been seeing.

Fans in Ohio will be hosting a big send-off at the team hotel, as the men head out to take on Vermont.
