Badgers fans excited for first Friday night game, new bag policy being enforced

MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) – Wisconsin Badger fans have been waiting nine months to jump around at Camp Randall Stadium once again.

Wisconsin opens the 2017 season with a rare Friday night game against Utah State.


This year, Camp Randall is celebrating 100 years, so this is an important season. Fans are excited and have high hopes for the team and what’s to come. Not only is this the first game of the season, it’s the first Friday game. No one seems to mind the change, everyone is ready to be back on campus and cheer on the Badgers.

“Just being with everybody like your friends, your dorm room, your floor, that’s gonna be the best part. Can’t wait to be part of that,” says freshman Liam Dolan.

“I’m feeling so great. We’re gonna crush ‘em,” says sophomore Noah Lantz. “Go Badgers!”

New this year, there’s a bag policy just like at NFL stadiums, meaning you can’t bring in anything bigger than a clutch 6.5” x 4.5” or about the size of a hand, according to officials.

You can bring in clear bags, but they can’t be bigger than 12”x 6”x 12”. There are exceptions for medical equipment and diaper bags but everyone else will be turned around at the gate.
