Wisconsin walk-on surprised with scholarship during team trivia game

Wednesday August 6th, 2014

Wisconsin Badgers football coach Gary Andersen had some great news for a walk-on player and he decided to spring it on him in an inventive way.

During a team trivia game to win Badgers bucket hats, Andersen asked Connor Udelhoven how many walk-ons had been awarded scholarships that year. Even though the long snapper got the question wrong, he still got the scholarship and a round of cheers from his teammates.

He did not receive a bucket hat though, because rules are rules.
