Badgers Fans Gear Up Ahead of Saturday's NCAA Showdown

No matter if you're heading to Arlington or just watching the game from home, one thing is for sure you have to sport your Wisconsin red. You better get it now because it's flying off the shelves.

It's been Badger mania at Pakerland Plus in the Wausau Center Mall where staff say they've sold thousands of dollars in Badger's merchandise this week alone.

That could be because they're one of only a few stores in town that has the Final Four t-shirts. If you haven't picked yours up yet it may be too late. Packerland Plus employee Joan Joss tells NewsChannel 7 they're already out of many sizes and have only two "Net Worthy" t-shirts left. Those are the shirts the players wore after their big win against Arizona last week.

"People literally followed the Fed-Ex man into the store and as I was opening the box I was selling them out of the boxes," Joss laughed.

With the exception of the Final Four t-shirts, Joss says everything else remains in stock. Some other popular items include hoodies, jewelry, headbands and baby gear.

One customer came in first thing Thursday morning to buy his less than 24-hour old grandson some Badger wear. His mom is a UW-Madison alumni and grandpa thought it was only appropriate he came right before the Badgers Final Four appearance.
