The Badgers basketball team is geared up for 2023. After another winning season in 2022, the Badgers are looking to improve their standings in 2023. The team finished last season 9-11 in the conference and 20-15 overall. The team went 11-6 at home and 6-6 on the road.
With that record, the team was invited to the NIT. Bucky went up against North Texas in the opening round. The Badgers were leading by 12 at the half, but were outscored 27-13 in the second half. Final score 56-54, North Texas wins by two points. Chucky Hepburn scored 15 points, and Steven Crowl had eight rebounds in that game. The team went 4/8 at the free throw line. Had they sunk just a few of those free throws, the outcome would have changed dramatically.
Badgers Basketball schedule for 2023-24
In 2023 the team will open the season at home against the Stevens Point Pointers on November 1. The Tennessee Volunteers will come to the Kohl Center on November 10, 2023. The Volunteers went 27-8 overall in 2022, made the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament, and went 14-4 in their conference.
The Marquette Golden Eagles will travel to Madison to play the Badgers on December 2. This in-state rivalry is always a high interest game for fans across Wisconsin. Marquette made it to the second round of the NCAA tournament in 2022. Marquette led the Big East in 2022 with an overall record of 29-7.
The powerhouse Michigan State Spartans host the Badgers on December 5. Michigan State also made it to the second round of the big tournament in 2022. The Spartans will come to Madison on January 26.
The Purdue Boilermakers will face the Badgers on February 4, 2023 at the Kohl Center. Purdue was a number one seed in the college tournament back in 2022 after winning the Big Ten Tournament.
The Marquette Golden Eagles Women’s volleyball team will face the Wisconsin Badgers on September 13, 2023. This game has quietly become a sell-out event via the box office. Tickets for this Golden Eagles volleyball game are available on our website, but they are going fast. We have two powerhouse teams going head-to-head, at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee.
The Golden Eagles had an amazing 2022 season. The Women’s volleyball team had a 29-4 overall record, and went 17-1 in their conference. The team was 18-0 at home, and lost to the Badgers, Creighton, and the #1 ranked University of Texas at the NCAA Championship tournament.
The Badgers went 28-4 overall in 2022, and went 19-1 in their conference. Their home record was 16-2. In the 2022 NCAA Championship, the team lost to Pittsburgh, after taking down Quinnipiac, TCU, and Penn State.
This upcoming game is a matchup of two of the best teams in the NCAA. Badgers fans will certainly be at the Fiserv Forum, and it’s going to be loud. It’s tough to choose which team to root for, as both represent Wisconsin, and we can be proud of their accomplishments either way.
There are some great Badgers football home games coming up for 2023. After an interesting and exciting season in 2022, the team is looking to improve their overall record and once again make an appearance in a bowl game. Here, we cover the Badgers Football home games in the upcoming season.

Summerfest 2023 will once again be spread over three weekends: June 22-24, June 29-July 1, and July 6-8. This format was adopted in 2021. At the moment of this posting, we have some headline acts already locked in for the fest.
Summerfest Headline Shows
As usual, there are three country music acts headlining the American Family Insurance Amphitheater. Classic rock/folk fans will be happy to see James Taylor hit the stage on June 24. Dave Matthews loves to play Wisconsin in the Summer. Closing the festival is the band Imagine Dragons. There is just one open date as of this post. That would be July 6. Here is the complete headline show list as of May 2023.
Summerfest 2023 is once again going to be held just on weekends this year. What are the best ways to get to the Summerfest grounds without the worries of parking? Taking a Summerfest shuttle from one of the local bars or hotels is a great option. Our list may not include every shuttle, but we’ve picked some of the best-known from around the city.
Steny’s Summerfest Shuttle
Steny’s is located on the corner of 2nd and National. What’s the cost of their shuttle? Just buy a drink at the bar and you’re all set. Shuttles start at 1 pm and run every hour. After 5 pm, the shuttles will run every 30 minutes. Just be sure to catch that last shuttle that runs about an hour after the Summerfest grounds close. Call Steny’s at (414)672-7139 to confirm.
O’Lydia’s Shuttle from the Third Ward
O’Lydia’s is quite close to the Summerfest grounds but far enough away to allow you to find a parking spot without worry. The bar is located at 338 S. 1st Street. Get to O’Lydia’s for some brews and food before you jump on the shuttle. Their menu includes your standard pub food, but they do it up right.
Paulie’s Pub – Shuttle from West Allis
Paulie’s Pub is a great Summerfest shuttle option if you are coming from the West Allis area. In fact, Paulie’s runs shuttles to so many other events. Grab a shuttle to the Fiserv, the Panther Arena, or the Brewers game. The bar is a great pre-Summerfest stop for a drink or food. They’re located at 8031 W. Greenfield Avenue, in West Allis.
Iron Horse Hotel – Shuttle from the Valley
Looking for a hotel shuttle to Summerfest? We recommend checking with the Iron Horse Hotel. The Iron Horse is on 5th & Florida, in the valley, just west of the Summerfest grounds. Rooms book early during Summerfest weekends, so it’s best to check months ahead.
Pfister Hotel Summerfest Shuttle
The Pfister is a historic luxury hotel in the heart of downtown Milwaukee. If you book a room for a Summerfest weekend, check with the Pfister to see if their Summerfest shuttle is running. It’s a 5-minute drive from the Pfister to the festival grounds, but a shuttle will save you the trouble of parking. Also, you never know if you’ll run into one of the bands headlining Summerfest that same night!
Hilton City Center – Milwaukee
The Hilton Milwaukee City Center is a large hotel on 5th & Wisconsin, in downtown Milwaukee. The hotel is a hub of activity all year round, and during Summerfest, it’s generally booked up. Still, you can grab their shuttle without having to book a room. Call the hotel to confirm the dates and availability before you head down to the Hilton.
The Wisconsin State Fair means many things to people of all ages. Some come to the fair for the farm animals, the food, the rides at the midway, or to just watch the people go by. Is it the giant baked potato, the corn on the cob, or the giant slide that brings you to State Fair Park? For many, it’s the music. You can sit on the Milwaukee Mile track every night and watch some great entertainment.
Who’s coming to the Wisconsin State Fair in 2022?
Opening Wisconsin State Fair in 2022 is comedian Jeff Dunham on August 6. On 8/7, the Happy Together Tour comes to the fair. That night, you might see The Buckinghams, The Turtles, The Grass Roots, or the Cowsills.
Kidz Bop Live! will headline August 9. Charlie Berens brings his music to the fair on 8/10/22. Vintage rockers Tesla will hit the stage on 8/11. Nelly, with Ginuwine heat things up on 8/12. Brett Young headlines 8/13. Closing out the Wisconsin State Fair is the classic country band Oak Ridge Boys.

It’s an annual tradition for Packers fans of all ages to attend Packers Family Night. In 2022, the scrimmage will be held on August 5th.
