Big Red Hits Red Light for Gameday

Big Red Hits Red Light for Gameday

Madison Police and the University of Wisconsin are being clear: There will be no tailgating for the first Badger football game this month.

Both the city and the school yesterday said they will close parking lots on campus and near Camp Randall Stadium for the season opener. There will also be a crackdown on open containers, and there will also be no Badgerville and Badger Bash. The Badger Band won’t play either.

UW-Madison says campus will be closed to visitors on game day, and there won’t be any shops open to sell Badger gear. Both the school and the city want to discourage Badger fans from flocking to Madison. Wisconsin opens its season against Illinois in two weeks.
