MADISON, Wis. -- Before Wisconsin’s season-opening AdvoCare Texas Kickoff game against LSU, the place in Houston for Badgers fans will be the J.J. Watt Foundation Tailgate.
The J.J. Watt Foundation Tailgate is Wisconsin’s official pregame party. The event runs from 5-7:30 p.m. inside the Houston Methodist Training Center on Saturday, Aug. 30. Tickets are on sale now.
Conveniently located immediately across the street from NRG Stadium in the indoor practice facility of the Houston Texans, this fun event will be a great way for Badgers fans to escape the Texas heat while getting ready for the big game.
In addition to the event host, Badgers great and Houston Texans star J.J. Watt, UW Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez and Heisman Trophy winner Ron Dayne will also be on hand.
Fans will want to be there early to enjoy music and entertainment. There’ll be terrific food provided by Killen’s Texas Barbeque, cheese by Muldoon Dairy and Emmi Roth and plenty of beer, soda and water. Fans will also enjoy interactive games and activities provided by the Houston Texans, a performance by the Texans cheerleaders, an appearance by Bucky Badger and the UW Spirit Squad and much more.
Tickets are $60 for adults and $25 for youth 12 and under. Tickets include admission to the tailgate, plus all the food and beverage you care to enjoy before the game. Space is limited, so order your tickets today.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Justin J. Watt Foundation. Established in 2013, the foundation has already donated more than $500,000 to provide after-school opportunities for middle school-aged children.
The J.J. Watt Foundation Tailgate is presented in partnership between Wisconsin Athletics, the Wisconsin Alumni Association and the Houston Texans.
