MADISON — The Florida Atlantic Owls are extending thanks to the Wisconsin Badgers for their hospitality this past weekend, while their state was faced with the devastation of Hurricane Irma.

As Irma battered down on South Florida Saturday, September 9th, the Wisconsin Badgers hosted the Florida Atlantic Owls at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison. The Badgers won 31-14.

Although the focus was on football Saturday, Irma was still on the minds of many. After the storm passed, FAU football posted to their Instagram on Monday, thanking the Badgers for their warm welcome over the weekend.

The post reads, “Now that Irma has passed, we have to thank Wisconsin for their Hospitality. Your department and fans are some of the best. Thank You.”

The Badgers responded, tweeting FAU’s post with the caption, “It’s bigger than sports” with the hashtag “#OwlsUp.”

Now that’s great sportsmanship.
