Local News

MADISON, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Universities in Wisconsin have been having to adjust to the start of the fall semester. For some, this has included the return of football to college gridirons.

Recently, the Big Ten Conference has announced it will kick off a regular season roughly four weeks from now.

The University of Wisconsin will start its season October 24 at home against Illinois. Today, Governor Evers said he was concerned about people gathering to watch the game, even though fans will not be allowed in Camp Randall Stadium.

Gov. Evers said, “Football is about football players and football fans. I expect the Big Ten should be doing a PR campaign around this big time. They are part of the people that made that decision to bring back football. I’m not arguing with the position, but I believe that they also have an obligation around that.”
