Badger Football is now less than 100 days away and Wisconsin will begin their 2023 season on September 2nd against Buffalo. With 99 days left until that game, we’re counting down which player best wears the squad number that matches each day until the season begins.
For the number 99, it is not difficult to find an athlete who can be considered the best to wear it. JJ Watt is the best Badgers player to wear that number.

Watt spent two seasons with Wisconsin after starting his college career as a tight end with Central Michigan, where he produced a total of 106 tackles, including 11.5 sacks, while with the Badgers.
His 2010 season really put him on the map and led to him being selected 11th overall in the 2011 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans. He went on to spend 12 years in the league, retiring in 2023 as a future Hall of Famer.
