BADGER HUDDLE® Homecoming Tailgate

Before the game, join alumni and friends for a Wisconsin-style tailgate buffet at the Wisconsin Field House. The BADGER HUDDLE® is the official UW pre-game party, which means it’s the only event in town that features appearances by Bucky Badger, the UW Spirit Squad and the UW Marching Band. The Field House is located at 1450 Monroe St., which is right next to Camp Randall Stadium. The event starts at 8:30 a.m. and runs until 10:30 a.m. Beer and soft drinks are included.

Each tailgate ticket purchased costs $40 per adult or $20 per child age 3 to 12, and each additional ticket purchased at the door costs $45 per adult or $25 per child age 3 to 12.

Note: Please bring a photo ID to be admitted to the BADGER HUDDLE®.

    Starting two hours before kickoff, buses will transport fans to Camp Randall Stadium from Lot 60 and Lot 64. Round-trip fare is $6, and one-way fare is $3. Return trips will run for one hour after the game ends.

    B-cycle bicycle-rental stations are located throughout campus.

More than a century of Homecoming history

Since 1911, Badgers have been coming back to campus to celebrate their alma mater.

Coming Home to Alma Mater Since 1911
On a crisp November weekend in 1911, 3,000 University of Wisconsin alumni met up for what was known as ‘smokes and cider’ at the gymnasium before heading to Camp Randall to root for the home team, not knowing they were establishing a Badger tradition now in its 100th year.
