Walker proclaims Friday "Wear Red Day" to support Badgers

“Whereas; All Wisconsin Badger fans are encouraged to wear red.”

Gov. Scott Walker signed the above proclamation Thursday making Friday “Wisconsin Badgers Wear Red Day” as the team prepares for the Big 10 Championship against Ohio State on Saturday. 

Walker is encouraged fans to show their support and wear red on Friday and Saturday, as the Badgers need to win for a chance at a College Football Playoff spot. 

“After an amazing undefeated regular season, the Badgers are set to bring home the Big Ten Championship on Saturday night,” Walker said in a statement. “I’m asking Wisconsin’s Badger fans to wear red this Friday and Saturday to show our support and cheer them on as they go for their biggest win so far this year. Go Badgers!”

Walker also proclaimed that should the Badgers win they will get a spot in the playoffs. However, the only playoff committee has that power, not the governor, unfortunately.
