This won’t go over well in Madison.

During Monday night’s Packers-Eagles game, ESPN ran a commercial touting its College Football Playoff selection show. Only four teams will be in the playoff, and each will face a rough road. The teams highlighted were Ohio State, Clemson, Penn State, Washington, Wisconsin and Alabama.

One problem: the word Wisconsin were on a video clip of the Nebraska football team. That’s a really rough road for the Badgers.

Well, at least the color schemes are similar for the teams.
