MADISON – The Florida Atlantic University Owls is thanking the Wisconsin Badgers for their generosity this past weekend.
The team posted on its official Instagram account, "Now that irma has passed, we have to thank Wisconsin for their hospitality. Your department and fans are some of the best. Thank you."
The team was in Madison for a matchup with the Badgers as Hurricane Irma made landfall down south.
The university was one of the few collegiate football teams from Florida to play over the weekend. Wisconsin won 31-14, but the Owls did not head back to campus after the loss and still remains in Madison. They are currently looking for a flight back home.
