Badger Gameday Traditions

USA Today recently named Madison America's Best College Football Town, and rightfully so.  You can join the game day action on and off the field by partaking in the Badgers traditions:

  • Join the Arch March by greeting the team buses at the intersection of Randall & Dayton Streets
  • Badgerville is the official pre-game event of Wisconsin Athletics which offers great food, music, and family fun on the grass field just north of Camp Randall
  • The 5th Quarter keeps 35,000 fans lingering after the game to enjoy the UW Marching Band's post-game performance
  • "Jump Around" with 80,000 fans between the 3rd and 4th quarters to House of Pain's party smash hit - don't be worried if the stadium shakes, it's known to happen.
