There’s a blizzard in Madison as the Wisconsin Badgers host the Illinois Fighting Illini on Saturday, and the October winter wonderland is creating a wonderful scene.
Full on snow storm now at Wisconsin. Football weather. pic.twitter.com/IP08c31nZs

The snow storm that just hit #madison is unreal. Check out the haze at the @UWBadgers v @Illinois_Alma game. Most of the crowd is not prepared. The team apparently is, up two scores! 14-0. #blizzard #CollegeFootball #winteriscoming #wisconsin @espn pic.twitter.com/YUxcX0i62y

What’s really crazy is this blizzard came out of nowhere.

It’s also creating havoc for players trying to do some pretty mundane stuff.

Many who didn’t get caught in the snowstorm had some great reactions to the winter wonderland in Madison.
wisconsin/illinois u57 in a snowstorm might have been the easiest bet ever. so many fumbles.

Nothings more midwesternly beautiful than a sudden snowstorm in Wisconsin and the majority of players refusing to wear long sleeves under their jerseys
