WATCH: Badgers coach surprises walk-on with scholarship


Wisconsin Badgers redshirt sophomore Connor Udelhoven got the surprise of a lifetime during a team meeting. The long snapper was a walk-on, but Head Coach Gary Andersen gave him a scholarship.

Coach Anderson played 'bucket hat trivia' with the team, asking the players a variety of questions. If they got it right, they received a Badgers bucket hat. Andersen put Udelhoven on the spot, asking him, "since we've arrived as a staff, a new staff here in January to have the opportunity and the honor to coach you guys, how many walk-ons have been awarded in this program? Six, eight or 10?"  

Udelhoven replies six, which is incorrect. Andersen says the correct answer is eight, but then says, "now it's nine. You're on scholarship."

Udelhoven's teammates cheer after Andersen's announcement.
