MADISON, Wis. -- Badgers football fans are invited to visit the official pre-game event of Wisconsin Athletics, Badgerville, presented by Johnsonville and Merkt's.

Gates open 2 1/2 hours before kickoff. Badgerville is located on the grass field just north of Camp Randall Stadium along Breese Terrace.

Badgerville features great entertainment including live music featuring such local bands as "Mighty Short Bus", "Pilot", "Lucas Cates Band", "BoB Rocks Reloaded" and the "Red Hot Horn Dawgs".

Badgerville will also have an appearance by members of the UW Band, UW Spirit Squad and Bucky Badger. There will also be activities for kids, including inflatable games.

Badger fans can meet UW teams with the "Team of the Week". Each week a Badger athletic team will be on-hand to sign autographs and mingle with fans. Scheduled to appear this season are men's and women's basketball, men's and women's hockey, men's soccer and volleyball.

There will also be all-time Badger greats introduced each week. Currently scheduled to appear are Badger greats Cory Raymer, Joe Stellmacher, Matt Shaughnessy, Chris Pressley, and Terrell Fletcher. Fans can keep track of other college football action on a big screen videoboard.

Fans looking to grab a bite to eat before the game will be in luck at Badgerville. A wide selection of food, beer and other beverages will be available.

Famous Dave's will be serving its legendary barbeque. Noodles & Company will also be on the menu along with Panchero's burritos. And, of course, no football pregame event would be complete without hamburgers, chicken sandwiches and Wisconsin's own Johnsonville Brats.
