Game on.

The Big Ten Conference has announced that the 2020–21 football season will begin October 24. Home games will be held in Camp Randall Stadium, but tickets will not be sold, and teams will follow strict testing protocols for the health and safety of all involved. We commend UW–Madison and UW Department of Athletics leaders, who are leading with care and concern and doing their best to provide a safe season for student-athletes.

As we await the season’s first kickoff, the Wisconsin Alumni Association® (WAA) is working on ways to fill that Motion W–shaped hole in your heart. Our traditional fall events will not go on as scheduled. Stay tuned for other ways we’ll lift your Badger spirit throughout the fall season and celebrate traditions, including UW–Madison Homecoming, which will help us kick-off the Big Ten season October 19–24.

On, Wisconsin!
