UW contributes to 'Extreme Makeover' episode on Oct. 12

Madison (WKOW) -- from UW Madison:  When "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" airs on ABC Sunday, viewers may notice some familiar items in the Anders-Beatty home.

  The University of Wisconsin-Madison, UW Athletics, Bucky's Locker Room and the University Book Store teamed up to provide some memorabilia and clothing items for the family and its new residence.

  Why UW-Madison items, you might ask?

  The eldest son in the family transferred to UW-Madison this fall from UW-Richland as part of the university's Connections program.

  The program allows Wisconsin residents to start out at a partner college or university and finish their bachelor's degrees at UW-Madison, giving them a UW-Madison student status from the beginning.

  And apparently, like so many other Wisconsinites, the family members are big fans of Wisconsin athletics.

  There is no indication of which items, if any, may have been included in the show.

  That has been kept under wraps and won't be revealed until Sunday night.
