Wisconsin football "Dream Season" presented by American Family Insurance returns


Badgers to present six classic games via YouTube and Badger Radio Network.

In the fall, prior to the start of the 2020 football season, the "Dream Season" presented by American Family Insurance featured four weeks of classic Badger games. For fans hoping to relive more great memories, Wisconsin is proud to announce the spring continuation of the ‘Dream Season’ with six more classic games presented weekly, starting on Friday, April 2.

Like in the fall, these "Dream Season" broadcasts will combine TV footage with the original radio call featuring the “Voice of the Badgers” Matt Lepay and Mike Lucas, and will also include many of the traditions Badger fans hold dear, including Jump Around, the 5th Quarter and more.

Each game broadcast of the six-week spring "Dream Season” will debut Fridays at 6 p.m. CT. All video broadcasts will be shown on the Badgers’ official YouTube page,

In addition to the video presentation, the games will be rebroadcast in Madison on 1310 WIBA-AM, in Milwaukee on The Big 920AM and on other participating stations throughout Wisconsin on the Badger Radio Network.
