MADISON, Wis. -- Badger football fans are invited to visit the official pregame tailgate of Wisconsin Athletics, Badgerville presented by Johnsonville. This free, fun-filled event is available to fans prior to Saturday's game vs. Tennessee Tech.
Located in the shadows of historic Camp Randall Stadium on Engineering Mall, the festivities begin at 8:30 a.m. Badgerville features a great entertainment lineup including live music from Pilot, an appearance by members of the UW Band and Spirit Squad, and autographs from the Wisconsin softball team. This week's honorary captain, Jim Bakken, will also be on hand for autographs. Plus, future Badgers will enjoy several inflatable games.
Fans looking to grab a bite to eat before the game will be in luck at Badgerville. A wide selection of food, beer and beverages is available. Famous Dave's will be serving their legendary barbeque. Panchero's Mexican Grill will offer burritos and other favorites. Plus, Noodles and Company will have a selection of pasta dishes available for purchase.
And of course no football tailgate would be complete without hamburgers, chicken sandwiches and Wisconsin's own Johnsonville brats. Dr. Pepper products and BadgerMax sports drinks and bottled water will also be available, plus a selection of beer choices.
