Wisconsin redshirt sophomore long snapper Connor Udelhoven entered a team meeting as a walk-on, but he left the room as a player on scholarship.

Badgers coach Gary Andersen put Udelhoven on the spot during bucket hat trivia. It turned out to be a great moment, even though he answered the question incorrectly.

When Andersen awarded Udelhoven a scholarship, the Badgers players showed their teammate some love.

Some Wisconsin players received a bucket hat for answering a question correctly, but there is no doubt that Udelhoven was the biggest winner.
