Support The University: Catch these 2021 Game Days
Some say the holidays are the happiest time of the year. A true Badgers fan will disagree with that. For so many of us football season is the happiest time of the year. A cozy red hoodie and a good beer. Fall foliage and a collective team spirit as the Badgers score a touchdown. Is there anything better? After a year without football, we’re so happy to be back in the stands.

Wisconsin Badgers vs. Illinois Illini’s in Champaign IL
Wisconsin Badgers vs. Purdue Boilermakers in West Lafayette Indiana
Wisconsin Badgers vs. Rutgers Scarlet Knights in Piscataway NJ
Wisconsin Badgers vs. Minnesota Gophers in Minneapolis MN
If you have to choose any one away game to travel to… this is the one. The rivalry between the Badgers and the Gophers is the oldest in the country. Each year, the teams battle for their trophy, Paul Bunyon’s Axe.
The Big Ten Football Championship Game will take place on December 4th in Indianapolis, IN.
Will the Badgers make it to the Championship Game this year? It’s too soon to tell! But the majority consensus is that coach Paul Chryst is a man who could make it happen. Wisconsin has consistently been a top 25 program throughout the last three decades. But only one thing is for sure…no matter what, we’ll be supporting the team every step of the way.
Ever wondered about the History of Camp Randall Stadium?
Construction of Camp Randall Stadium began over 100 years ago in 1917. It’s one of the oldest stadiums in America today. It’s been through several journeys of innovation and renovation and remains a sentinel for Wisconsin football. The stadium can hold approximately 80,000 fans at capacity.
Camp Randall has always been a training ground. But not always for precision passes and touchdowns… it originated as a Civil War training camp. The camp trained over 70,000 Union soldiers and served as a holding spot for Confederate prisoners of war. This established its history as a place for Wisconsin wins.
Throughout the years, the stadium has hosted several iconic events like Pink Floyd and Phil Collins in concert or hosting the State Fair.
The Badgers have been residents of Camp Randall since November 3rd, 1917 when they played a victorious 10-7 game against the Minnesota Gophers.
If you see any of The Hub Team at the games this fall, be sure to say hi! We’ll be cheering on our team every chance we get.
