MADISON (WKOW) -- The University of Wisconsin athletic department wants to increase ticket prices for Badger football games next year.
The proposal would increase prices by $3 a game, from $42 to $45.
The Capital Times reports the UW Athletic Board's finance committee approved the recommendation Tuesday, sending it to the full board.
Athletic director Barry Alvarez sent a letter to season ticket holders saying Badgers' ticket prices are competitive with other Big Ten schools.
The increase would still put UW's prices in the lower half of the conference.
