For First Time: University of Wisconsin Not Sending Entire Band to Bowl
University of Wisconsin Band will not be sending its entire band to the Holiday Bowl in San Diego due to budget cuts, according to WISC.
The UW football team will be competing in the Holiday Bowl.
Band Director Mike Leckrone announced Tuesday that all freshmen in the band will not be going on the trip because of budget issues.
University officials said only 200 members could go, so about 85 students had to be cut from the trip.
Up until this year the entire band was able to attend.
Some parents are upset because they had bought tickets to watch their kids in the game.
About $100,000 would need to be raised to send all the students.
