UW-Madison CALS to Help Organize 'Celebrate Ag' Football Event
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 08/26/2013
The University of Wisconsin-Madison Athletics and the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences are teaming up to hold a 'Celebrate Agriculture' game this weekend when the Badgers host the UMass Minutemen at Camp Randall Stadium on Saturday.
Game day festivities will celebrate Wisconsin agriculture and its deep UW connections. Agricultural messages will be displayed throughout the game at Camp Randall.
"Agriculture has made huge gains in dairy, livestock, field crops, vegetables and fruit, and in protecting soil and water. It creates many thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in economic activity," said CALS Dean Kate VandenBosch. "We're proud to have done research and education to support that, and we're
pleased to team up with UW Athletics to celebrate those accomplishments."
Kickoff time is 11 a.m. and the game will be televised nationally on the Big Ten Network. Tickets for the game are available for purchase online or by calling the Wisconsin Athletic Ticket Office at 608-262-1440.
