Play It Safe This Season
While this season is unlike any other, you’re still encouraged to enjoy the games. Just be a team player and watch them safely and responsibly — preferably at home and only with members of your own household, or in an outdoor venue while following CDC and Public Health Madison and Dane County guidelines. Wherever you watch the games, please help our communities and state beat COVID-19 by avoiding large gatherings, wearing a mask (consider it your helmet), and staying physically distant (no tackling).
Please do not travel to Madison on Game Days. Consider this a season of away games, and root for the Badgers from the comforts of home. And let’s look forward to the day we can all jump around in Camp Randall again. Badger fans need to look out for each other — stay safe and healthy!
All BADGER HUDDLE Armchair Pregames were filmed in accordance with University of Wisconsin–Madison guidelines at the time of production.
