Aaron Rodgers, J.J. Watt will be among those at national title game

Monday April 6th, 2015

Aaron Rodgers and J.J. Watt will be at Lucas Oil Stadium on Monday night, but it won't be to face off on the gridiron.

Instead, the two NFL stars will be cheering for the same team when Wisconsin plays Duke in the national championship game in Indianapolis, reports ESPN.

Watt played football for Wisconsin, while the Packers quarterback has attended multiple games during its run to the title game while showing support for the intrastate Badgers.

Rodgers and Watt aren't the only professional athletes who will be on hand. According to ESPN, Browns offensive tackle Joe Thomas, Mavericks guard Devin Harris and former NBA player Michael Finley, all of whom went to Wisconsin, will also be in attendance.
