With followers returning to Camp Randall for the primary time since 2019, they appeared able to sing “Soar Round” by Home of Ache. As quickly because the music hit, the place was rocking.
The custom dates again to 1998, in response to the Badger Herald. The Drew Brees-led Purdue crew was going through Wisconsin and the stadium performed “Soar Round” on the finish of the third quarter. The followers went nuts and it grew to become successful ever since.
“It began as simply one other tune to energise followers with the ulterior motive of making an attempt to make it tough for Purdue to maneuver the ball,” Wisconsin assistant athletic director for advertising and marketing and promotions Kevin Kluender instructed the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel in 2019.
“We tried it in the beginning of the ’99 season. They continued to take part and the custom began,” he added.
Wisconsin didn’t have followers on the stadium final yr as a result of coronavirus pandemic. The stadium gave the impression to be packed to the gills on Saturday afternoon.
