Wisconsin fans pelted their own cheerleaders with snowballs

It’s not Eagles fans throwing snowballs at Santa Claus, but it’s close.

During their halftime performance, Badgers cheerleaders became the target of a one-sided snowball fight led by their own disgruntled fans as Wisconsin trailed Northwestern 10-0.

Despite closing the gap in the second half, No. 21-ranked Wisconsin fell to No. 20 Northwestern 13-7.

Northwestern, now 8-2 (4-2 in the Big 10), is riding a three-game winning streak. The win marked Northwestern’s first victory at Camp Randall Stadium since 2000.

The Wildcats will look to extend that streak to four games next week against Illinois at Soldier Field.
