Wisconsin will host its first college bowl game after the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin announced the launch of the Culver’s Isthmus Bowl, which will kick off in Madison on Nov. 20, 2021.
The game will be played at the newly constructed Verona Area High School Wildcat Stadium and will highlight two Midwest football conferences at the NCAA Division III level.
“The Culver’s Isthmus Bowl was created to further showcase the two best conferences in NCAA Division III athletics nationwide,” said Mike Shaw, founder and Bowl Game director. “Putting together the first bowl game in Wisconsin state history is exciting, but bringing it to my hometown of Madison, WI is a dream come true. When Culver’s agreed to become the major sponsor, everything started to come together. They have been tremendous to work with.”
Additional sponsors Kwik Trip, American Family Insurance, Uline, Hy Cite Enterprises, Eno Vino Restaurants, the Shaw Family, Madison Partners and the Special Olympics.
“The greater Madison area is passionate about college football,” remarked Jamie Patrick, vice president of Madison Area Sports Commission (MASC). “After a year with few live sporting events, we are excited to bring the community this new fall bowl game and recognize a group of talented Division III athletes.”
Tickets for the bowl game are $10 and will go on sale starting Oct. 1. A portion of ticket sales will benefit Special Olympics of Wisconsin.
