Cool temperatures are considered ideal football weather, and Madison, Wisconsin, is never short of a chill in the air, come autumn. Along with the perfect weather, Badger fans have one of the best locales in collegiate football; the campus rests along stunning Lake Mendota. As far as food is concerned, cheese plates are never forgotten (it is the Midwest!), and most tailgaters serve up bratwurst in one form or another.
To make for your tailgate: grilled bratwurst.
