A star studded lineup was on campus to watch the first ever meeting between Wisconsin and Nebraska for the Freedom trophy. They all got to witness a record breaking performance by Badger running back Melvin Gordon and that created tons of buzz throughout the stadium and the nation. One of those visitors on hand was Hartland (WI.) Arrowhead junior offensive guard Ben Bredeson, who was pumped up to be there and see the dominating and record breaking victory.
“The atmosphere there was amazing and it was fun to be in the crowd,” Bredeson told BadgerNation. “The cold wasn’t too bad. I actually enjoyed it (laughter). That game was unreal by (Melvin Gordon). It was cool to be there and see it in person. It was just so fun.”
The massive 6-5, 280-pound offensive lineman, who sits as the top offensive guard in the state and nation by Scout has over time built up a strong bond with offensive line coach T.J. Woods and secondary coach Ben Strickland. That relationship with them further strengthen from his time again in Madison.
“I talked to Coach Woods and Coach Strickland a little,” said Bredeson. “We were just catching up really. My relationship with both of them is very good. My family loves both of them. I know that they both take care of me if were to go there. I’m still very interested. It is a great school plus coming from Wisconsin is huge as well.”
Bredeson does not have anymore upcoming visits planned
