Wisconsin students ejected for throwing snowballs at cheerleaders

Saturday November 21st, 2015

Fans at Wisconsin directed snowballs at Badgers cheerleaders during Saturday’s game against Northwestern.

During the second quarter, some students began throwing snowballs at each other in the stands. They then turned them on their own cheerleaders, who had to leave the field due to the volume of snowballs being thrown in their direction.

The Police had to issue a statement, telling students that they would be cited and ejected if they were caught. 

Here’s what the field looked like afterward:

Northwestern held a 7–0 lead at the time of the incident.
